2 was collected. Data Analysis: The qualitative data collected was analysed using Ccontent Analysis. Perception and distress impact analysis was performed on the data ( Moira et al., 2017) . Analysis entailed categorizing the salient aspects of data depending with the interview questions. Limitations: The major limitation is creating enough time to carry out a comprehensive interview within the specified study period. Findings/Discussion: The major finding is that major distress is as a result of the psychological and emotional problems that the patients undergo. Complications related to fatigue and memory were also found to be prevalent. Reading Research Literature : Literature review is an important aspect of carrying out a study since it provides the sufficient information towards the scope of the study. The section offers the multi-faceted information from various authors and also draws comparison and contrasts of information regarding a particular topic. The important aspect I have learnt from the literature review is the scope, design, methodology and analysis which are very essential for research outcomes ( Moira et al., 2017) .

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
