Abstract:
This study explored the experience of third and fourth stage cancer patients going through the dying process. Grounded theory methodology was used to interview six adults with third or fourth stage cancer, and to describe their experience of the dying process. A beginning theory, Paradox of Living and Dying, emerged from the data analysis as six interconnected categories: Life Philosophy, Changes in Status, Accept Death but Maintain Hope, Preparation for Death, Living With Cancer, and People Caring. Subjects described their perspective of the dying process, and the paradoxical and synonymous relationship between living and dying. Identifying aspects of the dying process enables oncology nurses to develop effective interventions to address the needs of people with advanced cancer.
