GUIMARAES, Tuani Magalhães; PACHECO, Sandra Teixeira de Araújo; NUNES, Michelle Darezzo Rodrigues  e  SILVA, Liliane Faria da. Perceptions of adolescents with cancer undergoing palliative care about their illness process. Rev. Gaúcha Enferm. [online]. 2020, vol.41, e20190223.  Epub 08-Jun-2020. ISSN 1983-1447.  https://doi.org/10.1590/1983-1447.2020.20190223.

Objective:

To understand the perception of adolescents with cancer undergoing palliative cares about their illness process.

Method:

An exploratory and qualitative study, per formed at a federal public hospital specialized in oncology disease in Rio de Janeiro, through interviews with nine adolescents aged 12 to 20 years old, from July to August 2017. Data was submitted to thematic analysis and the theoretical framework was Hildegard Peplau's Theory of Interpersonal Relationships

Results:

Three categories emerged: Living the difficult moment of the trajectory of the disease; Feeling the social isolation and that life has stopped; and Overcoming the difficult stage of the disease. They addressed the trajectory of the disease since the diagnosis, with the awakening of feelings of isolation and stagnation of life. Moreover, they highlighted the overcoming power of these adolescents.

Final considerations:

The study made it possible to know the difficulties experienced during the course of the disease, providing subsidies for the practice of nurses to happen in a sensitive, individualized manner and focused on the individual's need thus enhancing comfort and quality of life.
