Abstract

This study examines the role of the fast-track nurse in gynecology from a patient perspective. The fast-track nurse is a specialist nursing role, which coordinates patient care, in addition to providing specialized clinical care. Semistructured interviews were conducted with women who had fast-track surgery for gynecological cancer.
