|Title:||Elderly With Hematological Neoplastic Disorders: Actions And Difficulties Related To Self-care At The Beginning Of The Disease [idosos Com Afecção Onco-hematológica: Ações E As Dificuldades Para O Autocuidado No Início Da Doença.]|
|Author:||Rusisca-de Toledo E.H.|
|Abstract:||This study aims at identifying the actions and difficulties related to self-care at the initial period of the oncological-hematological disease, as reported by elderly persons attended at an outpatient setting. Interviews were carried out with 30 elderly at a hematology center in Campinas (SP). Data analysis allowed us to identify that, at the beginning of the disease, the most relevant self-care action was seeking medical care. However, the delay or difficulty in reaching a diagnosis, as well as coping with the disease and accessing health care services were the difficulties mentioned most frequently.|
