Abstract

This article presents and discusses findings from a qualitative pilot study that surveyed patients with cancer to discover their views on what makes a good nurse. Ten outpatients at a U.K. specialist cancer hospital, who had received inpatient treatment for cancer, were interviewed. The interview data was analysed thematically and four themes identified: good nurse virtues; knowledge; skill; and, organisational culture.
