Reach to Recovery Program, Breast Cancer, Surgery
A descriptive and exploratory study of the counseling needs of mastectomy patients and how they are met, and of the Reach to Recovery program through the American Cancer Society as a way of meeting these needs.
The author surveyed the professional literature and, briefly, some popular literature on the subject. In addition, a questionnaire was addressed to a group of Portland Reach to Recovery volunteers who served as a target population, one of whom was interviewed more fully.
