Abstract


Gastric cancer has been one of the major causes of death in Korea. At the same time, the survival rates of gastric cancer have increased due to the improved medical technology and increased screening examination which are able to find cancer in the early stage. The purpose of this study is to explore and describe the lived experience of gastric cancer patients by eliciting their verbal description of the experience.
Participants were persons who were diagnosed with gastric cancer at the hospital and living at home. The first phase of the study included 5 individual in-depth interviews of the patients. They were asked open-ended and descriptive questions in order for them to talk their experience in their own terms. The second phase interview was designed to discuss themes that were emerged from the analysis of previous interviews.
Interviews were tape recorded and transcribed verbatim. The transcripts were analyzed by Colaizzi method. Major themes that were emerged from the analysis are "diet control and nutrition", "changes in the role", "emotional distress", "folk medicine", "family’s and friends’s and friends’ support", "information seeking", and "spirituality or self-transcendence". The results of this study may help nurses and other health care workers to implement more efficient nursing strategies for gastric cancer patients by deeply understanding their lived experience in everyday life.
