Psychological Correlates of Survival in Nursing Home Cancer Patients.
Stein, Shayna; And Others
Gerontologist, v29 n2 p224-28 Apr 1989
Analyzed demographic, cancer, physical functioning and psychological data for late-stage cancer, newly admitted nursing home patients (n=90). Concluded that, compared to survivors, those who died within a three-month period more often acknowledged their condition as terminal, anticipated greater environmental stress and adjustment problems and had poor self-esteem.
