The Symptom Experience of Patients With Advanced Pancreatic Cancer: An Integrative Review

Conclusion: Findings suggest that physical and psychological symptoms are prevalent, some with high intensity. Preselection of symptom inventories limits our ability to fully understand the symptom experience of patients with APC. Future qualitative work is needed to provide a more in-depth understanding of symptoms, especially symptom quality and distress level, from patients’ perspectives. More studies are needed to explore psychological symptoms and the interaction of physical and psychological symptoms. Implications for Practice: Findings help healthcare givers to better understand the symptom experience of their APC patients.
