Abstract

Breast cancer and the associated physical problems may cause people to experience different psychological and social adaptation processes. Nursing interventions can affect physical, psychological and social adaptation in such women and help to prevent and overcome depression and anxiety. It should be stressed that both physical and psychosocial well-being enhance health and quality of life.
