Abstract

Gynecological malignant tumors are common tumors of the female reproductive system, including cervical cancer, endometrial cancer, and ovarian cancer. Chemotherapy is an important means to treat gynecological malignancies. It can significantly alleviate tumor symptoms, reduce recurrence rate and improve quality of life. However, the incidence of complications such as deep vein thrombosis and myelosuppression after discharge is still very high. This paper analyzes the status quo of health education needs of chemotherapy patients with gynecological malignant tumors, based on the content of health education needs, uses medical cooperation to intervene, and evaluates the effect of implementation. The results showed that the three most important aspects of health education for patients were “adverse reactions and coping strategies of chemotherapy drugs”, “clinical manifestations and treatment progress of diseases”, and “dietary nutrition guidance”. In selecting health education providers, patients have the highest proportion of choices for health care teams, 45%; the proportion of selected responsible nurses is only 4%. Chemotherapy for gynecologic malignancies has a need for health education, and they most want to choose a health care team as a health education provider. Based on the health education needs, the medical cooperation intervention can significantly reduce the incidence of complications, improve patient compliance, awareness of disease and satisfaction with health education.
