Social Activities of Patients with Oncological Diseases

Abstract— Aim of the research is to determine the specific character of the social-behavioral functioning of patients with oncological diseases by focusing and analyzing the results of patients with carcinoma of the cervix. Methods: A sociological survey among 150 patients with malignant neoplasms has been done, in which the principles of confidentiality and informed consent were strictly followed. In accordance with the topic, the results of 41 women with carcinoma of the cervix have been commented. Results: According to the limitation of the diagnosis most of the women are registered with a disease up to 6 months (19/46%) and up to 1 year (14/34%). 23 (56%) are not working at the moment of the survey, 18 (4%) – are working. There is a positive correlation between the active contacts of the patients with their families (59% of the surveyed mentioned this) and the statement that the communication with the others is meaningful when it enriches them (S=0.25, p=0.01) and a negative one with the statement that the number of people is important in the communication (S=-0.55, p=0.001). Age has a significant relation to the presence of a preferred activity/hobby, connected with movement and physical efforts (S=0.38, p=0.03). Patients who are in close contact with their relatives are certain that it is absolutely important to be active today and tomorrow (S=0.73, p=0.000). Conclusions: Psycho-therapeutic interventions must be addressed to those topics which can improve the quality of life, decrease the distress level and lengthen the patient’s life.
