Personal Bio

Srisupha Jaisopha is a nurse instructor from Thailand. Her grant received from the government led a great opportunity to pursue the PhD training in order to develop the nursing and health care profession at the School of Nursing & Midwifery, QUB: a world-class university.

Project Summary

Breast cancer women have different experiences across the survival continuum. They can die in any stage especially during the first 1 to 2 years of survivorship (extended stage) resulting from physical and emotional side effects of treatment or from the disease itself, as well as other non-health-related concerns such as financial and returning to work. Since the quality of life after cancer becomes a major concern, this study aims to assess the scores of quality of life experienced by Thai women living with breast cancer during this transitional stage compared to that of non-cancer volunteer group.
