The results showed that the nurses thought that quality of life was individual, in their care work the patients needs and valuations were used as a starting point. Aside form the specific care measures for respective side-effects they put an emphasis on talking and giving information to patients. In addition, they indicated the relationship they had with their patients. Accordi
