Description
In this study, the authors clarified experience of nurses with the dilemma toward the wish for recovery of cancer patients who discontinued treatment. An interview survey was performed for 14 nurses who had ever care cancer patients who discontinued their treatment. Experience of nurses with the dilemma toward the wish for recovery of cancer patients who discontinued treatment consisted of the following categories ;[ I am not able to respond to the patient’s wish though I want to],[There is difference how to spend the time remained between the patient and me],[I do not have a sufficient power to support the end of the patient’s life],[I feel disconsolate being unable to realize the patient’s wish for recover]and[I’m a nurse. I never run from my patients]. The nurses with dilemma had experience in facing nursing cares driven by the sense of responsibility as a nurse while holding pain in their heart. Ethical problems may be underlying in this experience, and the need of team work, not individual responses, has been suggested. Therefore, support to reveal experience of nurses in daily nursing care is needed.
