Abstract

Autologous bone marrow/peripheral blood stem cell transplant is one of the
recent treatments to offer hope of a cure or prolonged remission for certain
types of cancer. Current literature predominantly has either a biomedical
focus or deals with long term survivorship issues. The ways in which this
treatment option is perceived by survivors is important in providing nurses
with a deeper insight and understanding with which to inform nursing
care.
Utilising a phenomenological hermeneutic methodology seven people who
have survived this treatment, participated in sharing their stories in
individual audio-taped interviews. Themes which emerged from the text
include: changing concepts of self; the significance of relationships; being
different from the past; and temporality.
