MetadataShow full item record
Cancer care has several constraints for patients, providers and personal caregivers in low and middle income countries especially India. Using qualitative methods, 60 in-depth interviews were conducted with these stakeholder groups underpinned by the communicative rationality framework and the health belief model. Findings reveal the existence of collusion; dearth of support services; burnout and loneliness of healthcare providers. The research has proposed a collaborative communicative model and recommends context specific research in the care continuum.
