dc.description.abstractPurpose: The primary surgical therapy for breast cancer represents a special phase in the course of the disease. The aim of this study was to find out the specific strains influencing the women affected during this time, and the needs and expectations they had of the nurses. Method: In a semistructured interview, 42 women at an early stage of breast cancer were asked about their strains and care needs. Results: The results show that the women interviewed suffer more from psychological strains than physical ones, and express the wish for, above all, emotional support. Analysis of the interviews provides 4 categories of strains: immediate strains regarding the surgery, fear through uncertainty. change of self-perception and the strains caused by the social environment. Care needs can be divided into 3 main areas: wishes for (a) the relationship to the nurses, (b) professional competence and (c) the external conditions of care. Conclusions: Nurses can support the women well by listening to them, accepting their emotions and informing them in detail. Therewith, they can convey a sense of security to the women and help them to maintain hope and the ability to deal with reality. (C) 2009 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
