Abstract

Recent models of care recommend that provision of psychosocial support be provided across disciplines throughout cancer treatment. While nurses are well positioned to provide this support as they have the most access to patients and patients perceive support from nurses as acceptable, little is known as to how much they perceive provision of psychosocial support as part of their role as cancer nurses. This study aimed to explore factors influencing nurses' attitudes towards providing psychosocial care and unmet training needs.
