AbstractThis study examines psychosocial difficulties faced by Chinese patients with colorectal cancer, and attempts to identify factors that contribute to the meaning searching process that in turn brings about growth and transformation. Twenty-six patients with colorectal cancer were interviewed. Data were analyzed using the constant comparative method. Two domains of psychosocial disorientation states were identified, namely, cognitive disorientation and emotional disorientation. Factors that facilitate meaning searching were identified and categorized into personal factors and external factors. The areas of growth and transformation through meaning searching were presented with narratives. Findings from the present study not only shed light on psychosocial hindrances among colorectal cancer patients but also have the potential to inform the design of intervention strategies to bring about meaning-orientated transformation through cancer experiences.
