Abstract

Introduction: The complexity of treating gynecological and breast cancer causes unmet needs for survivors. This systematic review aimed to identify the most unmet needs of gynecological and breast cancer survivors from the available evidence. Method: Researchers searched the electronic databases PubMed, Cochrane, CINAHL, Ebsco Host, and Science Direct with predetermined criteria. The keywords used were combinations of "gynaecologic* cancer" OR "gynaecologic* cancer survivors" OR "breast cancer" OR "breast cancer survivors" AND "unmet needs." A systematic review was made using PRISMA, the critical appraisal was carried out with the JBI instrument, and bias analysis was carried out using the Robvis Tool. Results: There are 12 selected articles. The two highest unmet needs domains for gynecological and breast cancer survivors are the health system information and psychological domains. Conclusions: Nurses and other health workers must pay attention to implementing holistic care to meet the various needs of gynecological cancer survivors, including health system information and psychological domains.
