dc.description.abstractThe study compared the quality of life of 51 cancer patients who dropped out of chemotherapy, 19 who refused treatment and a further 70 patients who had completed chemotherapy. The patients were treated in five oncological institutes in Israel. The findings of this study indicate that the quality of life of patients who refuse chemotherapy is no different from that of patients who drop out of treatment or patients who complete treatment. The findings also show that the quality of life of the patients who drop out of treatment is worse than that of patients who complete chemotherapy.en
