Description:
This study was commissioned by Action Breast Cancer (ABC), part of the Irish Cancer Society, and was conducted in conjunction with the School of Nursing in Dublin City University (DCU). The research team would like to express their heartfelt thanks to everyone who participated in this research. In particular we would like to thank all the women who took part in the focus groups and who returned questionnaires, and in so doing shared their experiences. We would also like to thank all the breast care nurses, retail prosthesis fitters and bra fitters who participated. We greatly appreciated the support and facilitation received from the Follow-up Breast Care Clinics and support organisations, in particular Europa Donna and Reach to Recovery, throughout the research. Finally we would like to acknowledge the funding received from the Health Research Board and Action Breast Cancer, as part of the Building Partnerships for a Healthier Society Research Award Scheme, which enabled this important research to be undertaken.
