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. She is currently working on the research project enhancing cancer nursing, supportive and palliative care.
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.
