Rager, Kathleen B.
Adult Education Quarterly, v53 n4 p277-93 Aug 2003
Self-directed learning experiences of 13 women with breast cancer were explored. Learning motivations included overcoming fear, needing to understand, and being able to make informed choices. They used print, Internet, networks, and support groups. They had difficulties locating resources and dealing with emotions. Learning outcomes included self-confidence, ability to help other patients, less stress and fear, and more knowledge. (Contains 28 references.) (SK)
