Factors that enhance autonomy of cancer patients
Date:3/3/2008

This release is available in Spanish.

The PhD, defended by Ana Mara Martnez Fernndez at the University of the Basque Country, proposes a series of recommendations that contribute to improving clinical and care tasks of the professionals who treat terminal cancer patients.

Autonomy is the capacity to take decisions and undertake activities when armed with knowledge about the causes of the illness, sufficient information thereof and in the absence of duress, either internal or external. With autonomy we express our system of values and what is good for each patient is decided. The more chronic the illness of patients and the more their treatment is under question, the more autonomy is called for; this becoming greater the more information is available.

The problems that usually arise in Palliative Care, besides those typically involving care arising from the pathology in question and its medical-biological complications, are informative-communicational ones, assignation of resources and everything related to the life-death binomial. It is these factors where the level of autonomy of the patient is crucial and involving decision-making.

This is the theme of the doctoral thesis that Ana Mara Martnez Fernndez defended at the Faculty of Medicine and Odontology at the University of the Basque Country (UPV/EHU). The research involved the study of factors influencing the development of the autonomy of the cancer patient in a clinically terminal situation, proposed a series of recommendations that contribute to improving the clinical and care tasks of the professionals who are involved with terminal cancer patients.
