Purpose: Develop a middle-range theory and model explaining the
decisional context within which women with breast cancer make treatment
decisions. The overall goal of this work is to inform and guide nursing
research and practice in the area of patient decision making. Organizing
Construct: Decisional context of women with breast cancer. Definition:
Decisional context is defined here as the set of interrelated conditions
forming the biopsychosocial environment of an individual in which a choice
between two or more options is made. Decisional context is dynamic, the
effect of decisions feeding forward and back on the present and future of
the decision maker and others, however, it may not be fully accessible nor
recognizable to even those involved in the process. Method: Review of
literature spanning existing years of Medline, CINAHL, and PsycINFO
databases. Key words: decision-making context, meaning of illness,
perceptions of cancer, breast cancer, decision making, social values,
social influences, patient values, personal values, patient preferences,
patient advocacy, politics, mass media, periodicals, family, cultural
values, and culture of disease. Findings: A synthesis of the research
findings put forth by a variety of disciplines supports the existence a
definable context within which women making breast cancer treatment
decisions find themselves. This context is depicted by a model of the
interrelationships of six components: societal, external-patient,
internal-patient, provider, decision-making process, and patient decision
satisfaction. Implications for Nursing: It is intended that the Decisional
Context of Patients with Breast Cancer theory and model will be readily
accessible to nurses and provide them with greater understanding and
guidance in their assessment, planning, and intervention in the
decision-making process of women with breast cancer. Additionally, this
work will provide direction to research, specifically the study of
hypotheses regarding the linkages between the components of decisional
context and the concepts of which these are comprised.
