Ovarian cancer patients: are their informational and emotional needs being met?

Author information

Birmingham Women's Healthcare Trust, Birmingham, UK.


A study was undertaken to assess if the informational and emotional needs of ovarian cancer patients were being met according to their individual requirements. In the study, a gynaecology oncology specialist nurse provided hospital nursing support through individual care and a patients' support group. A questionnaire was completed by 24 patients using an integrated qualitative and quantitative data collection. This study showed that respondents evaluated positively the care provided in these two ways. Further research into the needs of gynaecological cancer patients should be undertaken.
