AIMS AND OBJECTIVES:
To describe how patients with malignant blood diseases conceive the influence of chemo- or chemoimmunotherapy on sexuality, and their need of support related to this issue.
Sexuality is often negatively affected in cancer patients with sex-specific diagnoses. For patients with malignant blood diseases, the research is limited with regard to the effect on sexuality. Knowledge about their need for support related to sexuality is also needed as nurses are found to often avoid this area of their responsibility.
