dc.description.abstract Breast cancer is the leading cause of female cancer in Manitoba. The purpose of this qualitative study was to arrive at an increased understanding of the supportive care experiences of rural women requiring treatment for invasive breast cancer. Twenty women from four regional health authorities participated in the study. Data was collected using face-to-face, semi-structured interviews and analyzed by content analysis through an interpretative qualitative lens. The findings have provided a holistic overview of the supportive care experiences of women living with breast cancer that are uniquely Manitoban and captured both the positive aspects of living rurally and the challenges that present in the face of a cancer diagnosis. The findings are supported by the literature and will be of keen interest to health providers from this province. Pragmatic recommendations have been generated from the study findings with implications to inform practice, education and research. en_US
