Understanding the Breast Cancer Experience of Women: Exploring the Significance of the Doctor-Patient Relationship’: Sarah

Sarah Gordon is a psychology honours student at Howard college. Her project is qualitative, interpretive, hermeneutic research, focusing on South African women who have been diagnosed with breast cancer and who have access to private health care although they may also use a combination of public and private health care services throughout the course of their diagnosis and treatment. Five women who have been diagnosed with breast cancer and live in Durban were sampled. Semi-structured interviews were conducted.

do you think that that cultural context in which breast cancer is diognosed is important?

thank you for a very professional presentation! i think this is a very important research study- it looks at women (thus empowering them by hearing their experiences) and it looks at a cancer that normally induces fear amongst most women.
so well done!

i think sarah's presentation was very relevent considering the lack of importance the South African DOH places on breast cancer even though its the number one cancer among women.
