The talk deals with three major issues which we have found to be significant and bothersome for cancer patients and their family members in the framework of critical nursing. The three issues refer to the place of dying (e.g., home, hospital, nursing home), the time (e.g., the phase of the disease and degree of suffering) and the manner of dying (e.g., under one?s control or not). The involved issues have been studied in studies with patients and their family members. In one study medical and demographic variables were examined as predictors of the place of dying, compared to the patient?s preference. Another study examined the impact of nutritional state and mobility on the patient?s quality of life and desire to live. The relations between pain and desire to live have also been examined. A separate study was devoted to the impact of support systems (by family and nursing staff) and of beliefs on the survival of patients in critical care.
