- Brief summaryCancer is a serious and potentially fatal illness. Scientific studies indicate that in case of life threatening diseases good social support is of great importance for the feeling of physical and emotional well being. However, reactions from the environment intended to be helpful are not always perceived as helpful by the patient. This indicates that in case of life threatening diseases social support can be an important source of assistance. At the same time there is little knowledge about what specific social reactions are perceived as helfpul or not helpful. More knowledge about the factors that play a part in the way social support is experienced makes it possible to bring out groups of patients that are at risk for problems in adapting to cancer or adequately using available social support.
