dc.descriptionBreast Cancer is one of the most common cancers affecting women in Ireland with approximately 1,726 women being registered with breast cancer each year (National Cancer Registry Ireland (NCRI), 2005). The majority of women with breast cancer have surgery as a form of treatment either on its own or in combination with radiotherapy, chemotherapy and/or hormone therapy (NCRI, 2005). An integral part of the recovery post surgery involves considering restorative options. For many women in Ireland this means being fitted with an external breast prosthesis. Currently, there are an estimated 16,000 women in Ireland who have undergone a mastectomy and require an external breast prosthesis. The overall purpose of this research is to gain an insight into women’s experience of the provision, fitting, supply and use of external breast prostheses in Ireland.en
