Abstract

The purpose of this research was to explore the lived experience of multiple concurrent symptoms in people with advanced lung cancer to contribute to the understanding of the experience of symptom clusters. Purposive sampling recruited ten people with advanced lung cancer who were experiencing three or
more concurrent symptoms, were at least 18 years of age and were able to provide written informed consent. The participants took part in two consecutive, in-depth interviews, 3-5 weeks apart. Phenomenological analysis was used to analyse the data.
