Post-treatment adjustment and behavior change among women with breast cancer

Costanzo, Erin Susan 01 January 2006 (has links)
Anecdotal and qualitative evidence suggests that women may experience disrupted adjustment during the months following the end of adjuvant breast cancer treatment, in part due to the loss of a "safety net" associated with regular treatment coupled with uncertainty regarding cancer status. The present study examined distress and quality of life, as well as behavioral and cognitive predictors of adjustment, during the three months following adjuvant treatment for breast cancer. Participants were 89 women with breast cancer who completed measures of distress, quality of life, health behavior, behavior changes, and common-sense beliefs about cancer at three time points: toward the end of adjuvant treatment, 3 weeks following the end of treatment, and 3 months post-treatment. Findings indicated that breast cancer survivors were remarkably well-adjusted following treatment: participants reported low levels of anxiety and depression and good health-related quality of life. Nonetheless, women acknowledged significant concerns about ongoing physical symptoms, potential recurrence, and the process of returning to or building a "new normal." Results further suggested that behavior changes were quite common after the end of treatment, particularly positive changes in health practices. Although good health practices were associated with better adjustment, making positive changes in the same behaviors often predicted greater distress. Women's common-sense beliefs about breast cancer provided insight into whether women decided to make behavior changes and what behaviors they decided to change. Women who perceived greater control over their cancer, saw their cancer as an acute rather than chronic condition, and attributed cancer to controllable causes or believed that behavioral or psychological factors could prevent recurrence were more likely to make behavior changes and engage in positive health practices. Although it was predicted that beliefs and behavior changes would interact to predict distress, no consistent pattern of interactions was found. In sum, breast cancer patients actively attempt to create a "new normal" following treatment, and changes in health practices appear to be an important part of this process. Assessing women's beliefs about their cancer and providing psychoeducational interventions addressing post-treatment behavior changes may assist in promoting breast cancer survivors' psychological and physical well-being.

Health practices related to Dikgaba in pregnancy in the Bojanala district of the North West province, South Africa / Swinky Cornelia Kgoadigoadi

Kgoadigoadi, Swinky Cornelia January 2010 (has links)
The use of traditional medicine during pregnancy and childbirth is common among the Black traditional cultures of Southern Africa. Any pregnancy–related problem is believed to be somehow associated with dikgaba, a phenomenon that only indigenous healers are capable of managing. It is therefore crucial that the midwives and other health care professionals acknowledge the relevance of traditional medicine when dealing with clients who belong to black traditional societies of South Africa. The objective of the study was to explore and describe health practices related to dikgaba in pregnancy as well as to formulate recommendations for culturally congruent and safe midwifery care. In–depth individual interviews were conducted to collect data from ten participants known to be experts in kgaba remedies used during pregnancy and birth. These were traditional healers, traditional birth attendants and those with keen interest in traditional and cultural issues. Interviews were conducted in the participants’ homes for privacy, confidentiality and convenience. A naturalistic and phenomenological approach using contextual exploratory and descriptive research design was used to reach the aim of the study from the perspectives of Batswana in the North West province. The study revealed that an understanding of dikgaba and the related healing practices in pregnancy and childbirth is common. This clearly motivates for better understanding of traditional medicine by the midwives as it is relevant and justifiable. Recommendations are made to inform the transformation of the health–care delivery system, with specific reference to midwifery education, research and practice, in order to make health care acceptable and accessible to all. / Thesis (M.Cur.)--North-West University, Potchefstroom Campus, 2011.
