    Background: When a person suffers from cancer their entire world changes. A lack of knowledge creates a feeling of not being able to adequately grasp the situation, which is why it is important that the nurse provides decent caregiving with emphasis on entirety and communication. Purpose: The purpose of the literature study was to describe patients' experiences of the nurse's approach in relation to cancer treatment at hospital. Method: A literature review that is based on ten qualitative articles. Result: Through analysis, three main categories were found: The importance of wide knowledge by the nurse, The importance of a good nursing relationship and The importance of good caretaking that benefits the patient's well-being and their will to participate. Method of discussion: The reason, as to why there were not many articles found on the subject matter, is due to the fact that there is more research conducted from the nurse's perspective. The preunderstanding was confirmed and the authors get more insight in how important two-way communication is. Discussion of result: The patient wishes to feel involvement from the nurse and a good relationship between the two arises when good communication exists
