Abstract:
Purpose: The purpose of this study was to explore the hope structures on the patients in the stage of newly diagnosed cancer, by examining the relationships between hope and the three hope structure orienting concepts basing the multidimensions of the Nekolaichuk and Bruera's hope model(1999). Theoretical Framework: The hope model proposed by Nekolaichuk et al.(1999) emphasizes the personal intangible experience of hope within a multidimensional framework. The model consists of three interconnected dimensions: 'personal spirit' regarding personal meaning, 'risk' related to situation, and 'authentic caring' related to interpersonal relations. Methods (Design, Sample, Setting, Measures, Analysis): The concepts of 'personal spirit', 'risk', and 'authentic caring' were defined as operational terms of 'perceived meaning of life' (PML), 'perceived confidence in cure' (PCC), and 'perceived family support' (PFS) and 'perceived support from medical team' (PSM) respectively. Data collection was made with survey method from 32 Korean newly diagnosed cancer patients. The level of Hope, PML and PCC were measured with visual analog scale. PFS and PSM were quantified with reliable Korean version of Cobb's social support scale. Examining the relationships of the concepts using Pearson correlation coefficients was made to get the possible hope structure existing on the newly diagnosed cancer patients. Results: The highest relationship was between hope and PCC. The second significant relationship existed between hope and PML. In addition, there were significant relationships between PML and PCC, PFS and PML, PSM and PML, and PSM and PFS. Conclusions and Implications: The results indicate that risk or situation oriented hope is likely to be expressed on the newly diagnosed Korean cancer patients as a dominant pattern. These would experience hope in different ways or in different structures such as 'PCC influences hope', 'PML influences hope', 'the path of PML to PCC or PCC to PML influences hope', 'the path of PFS to PML or PML to PFS influences hope', 'the path of PSM to PFS or PFS to PSM influences hope'.
