- Purpose: The purpose of this study was to identify and define the concept of cancer rehabilitation in the lives of cancer survivors. Methods: A hybrid model of concept development was used to interface theoretical analaysis and empirical observation with a focus on definition. A comprehensive literature review and semi-structured interviews with five cancer survivors were completed. Results: The concept of cancer rehabilitation was found to be a route toward a positive experience having meaning in two dimensions: recovery of the activities of daily living and intrapersonal growth. Four attributes and ten indicators were defined. Conclusion: Cancer rehabilitation was defined as a positive process of change through recovery of the activities of daily living and intrapersonal growth. Therefore, oncology nurses can be encouraged to design, implement, and evaluate cancer rehabilitation nursing interventions with the results of this study. Further research needs to develop cancer rehabilitation measurements.
