Abstract

With an increasing number of women surviving breast cancer beyond treatment, the focus of care has shifted from the acute treatment-related side effects to long-term effects associated with changes in quality of life (QOL). Part I of this article described the impact of breast cancer on the domains of physical and social well-being of 21 long-term survivors of breast cancer through qualitative analysis. Part II explores the impact of breast cancer on the domains of psychological and spiritual well-being.
