Summary or Abstract : Current breast cancer treatments increase life expectancy, but they also affect quality of life. One after-effect of breast cancer treatment is lymphedema. As a chronic, incurable, and sometimes disfiguring condition, the effects of lymphedema take both a physical and psychological toll. The purpose of this pilot study was to examine the impact of enhancing self-efficacy on breast cancer survivors' lymphedema self-management and quality of life. The quantitative data showed the scores for self-efficacy and quality of life trended up from baseline while the reduced level of lymphedema achieved during treatment was maintained The follow-up focus group revealed three themes, that of the survivor experience, the lymphedema experience, the shared group experience. The results of this study highlight the importance of psychosocial interventions and how they can provide a basis for nurse researchers and clinicians in promoting improved self-management and quality of life for patients with breast cancer related lymphedema.
