Experiences of living with incurable haematological malignancy: a research portfolio
Caldwell, Ellie M.
This thesis follows the research portfolio format and is carried out in part fulfilment of the academic component of the Doctorate in Clinical Psychology at the University of Edinburgh. An abstract provides an overview of the entire portfolio thesis. Chapter One contains a systematic review of published research investigating the experience of living with incurable forms of haematological malignancy. Chapter Two is an empirical study exploring adults’ experiences of living with follicular lymphoma while being maintained under the ‘watch and wait’ protocol. Both chapters are prepared for submission to the European Journal of Cancer Care, and follow their author guidelines.
