AbstractChemotherapy poses challenges for older patients, with potential comorbidities, mobility and functional problems that may adversely affect their dignity. Patients may struggle with side-effects but fail to inform health professionals, impacting on clinical management and unresolved needs/concerns. This study aims to explore the impact of dignity during chemotherapy for older people and partners.
