Abstract:

The purpose of this study was to examine how ovarian cancer survivors living outside of large urban centres cope with one of their most common concerns, their fear of cancer recurrence (FCR). A small number of interventions to help survivors cope with FCR are currently being tested, however, the majority of these interventions are only available to survivors living in large urban centres. Given that that survivors living outside of urban settings report higher psychological morbidity than their urban counterparts, suggests that the FCR of non-urban cancer survivors is an important topic to explore so that relevant interventions (e.g., online group interventions) can be developed. To this end, this qualitative study was undertaken to explore the coping strategies and styles of ovarian cancer survivors living outside of major urban centres.
