This study aimed to clarify recognition about the appearance of nurses in an acute stage hospital and contribute to effective spread and enlightenment for maintenance of the appearance support system.
The authors performed a questionnaire survey with the items such as interest in appearance care, start period, participants for care, enforcers, support resource and so on for １８３ nurses with cancer nursing experience who worked at hospitals in local cities that were bases for cancer treatment cooperation. The result revealed that a number of participants interested in appearance care and most of them recognized that appearance care should start at the time of cancer examination or before treatment. Moreover, it has been indicated that the nurses who were highly concerned with appearance care from a wider perspective including patients’ psychological conditions. The result has suggested that it is necessary to promote “care to prepare in anticipation of change in physical appearance” on the basis of the characteristic of acute stage hospitals and establish an individual support system in accordance with the conditions of the nurses’ interest in appearance for maintenance of the appearance support system.
