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

ice with this type of patient are resolved by incorporating conventional clinical history and a series of data or recommendations which, generally because of lack of knowledge, are not registered. For example, it is useful if the patient and carer know the prognosis and diagnosis of the illness. The medical report should indicate the level of knowledge the patient has in his or her case; if they have rejected any treatment to date, if they have signed informed consent forms and if they possess advanced care directives. The carer or family circle should be made aware if the patient has been denied information about his or her diagnosis or prognosis and if they have been let read the true medical report and, if the case arises, if the patient has been advised to have morphine administered.

During monitoring, it is advisable to register the data related to the attitude of the patients, such as their participation in the treatment, if they say goodbye to their immediate circle, and so on; the attitude of the carers (what do they say to the patients about their illness? How do they respond to their questions?, etc.); also to be taken into account are social attitudes in order to make an analysis of the people around the patient or health attitudes in order to know what information is being given to the patient about their case, the process, and so on.
