Nurses are often engaged in providing care for patients who are diagnosed with terminal illness and are faced with the process of dying. Working with these patients and families can be emotionally demanding and challenging. Nurses ought to meet the challenge of developing and rendering effective interventions for cancer patients, focusing predominantly on health promotion, end-of-life care, and above all, the four domains of health-related quality of life: physical, psychological, emotional and spiritual functioning. Health-related Quality of Life (HRQoL) interventions can empower patients to practice health behaviors and facilitate them to be self-directed in their care; thereby contributing substantially to their quality of life. This study aimed to describe and understand the „lived‟ experiences of oncology nurses in providing health-related quality of life interventions among cancer patients. The study was conducted using descriptive phenomenological method and data was generated through one-on-one audio-recorded interview with ten oncology nurses Colaizzi‟s  procedural interpretation of the phenomenological method of inquiry was used for data coding and identifying themes. Methods to ensure trustworthiness of the findings were implemented. Three themes with 14 sub-themes were identified. Results of the study showed that health-related quality of life interventions were essential in nursing care among cancer patients. It was suggested that the manner in which cancer patients‟ quality of life improves through HRQoL interventions should be further studied. In addition, it may be of value for nursing leaders to provide specified training programs for oncology nurses working on issues relevant to the HRQoL intervention skills.

It occurs in retirement as a result of challenge experienced by retirees, complex interaction of social, psychological and biological factors. The aim of this study is to investigate the associated factors of emotional health problems (depression, anxiety, and stress) among retirees in Kogi State, Nigeria. The study utilized correlational survey research design. The population for the study comprised 9,950 retirees in Kogi State, Nigeria. The retirees aged 60 and above were selected using multi-stage sampling procedure to give a total sample size of 1,250 respondents. The Depression, Anxiety, and Stress Scale (DASS-21) was adapted and used to determine associated factors of depression, anxiety, and stress. Bivariate analyses were performed using frequencies, percentages, point-biserial correlation, Cramer’s V coefficient and multiple regression analyses were conducted to determine the relationship between the factors and each of the emotional health problem statuses assessed. The result showed that there were weak positive relationship between depression and age of retirees (rpb= .09, p= .001), anxiety (rpb= .10, p=.001), stress (rpb= .14, p=.001), there were also weak positive relationship between depression and associated factor of income level of retirees and depression (V= .06, p= .050), anxiety (V= .10, p=.001), stress (V= .04, p=.127). Furthermore, there were significant relationships between depression and retirees’ demographic factors of gender (P= .000) and age (P=.004) and educational level (p = .000) with 5% of the variation experiences of depression among retirees, Anxiety and retirees’ demographic factors of gender (p=.001) and age (p=.001), level of education (p=.000), place of residence (p=.02) and income level (p=.02)with 7% experiences of anxiety among retirees and stress and retirees’ demographic factors of gender (p=.000), age (p=.000), place of residence (p=.221), and educational level (p=.001) with 6% experiences of stress found among retirees. The study recommended that Kogi State government should establish guidance clinics in all ministries and local government area and pension commissions in the states. This will create opportunities for counselors to provide psychological education to all retiree clients with problems of adjustment. Government should also establish and build a retirement home for the elderly retirees, as well run a social welfare schemes for retirees like we find in developed countries. This will ensure freedom and comfort for smooth transition from the world of work to the world of retirement.
