BACKGROUND: Primary malignant brain tumor is a severe disease with a poor prognosis causing reduced life expectancy and possible alteration in the perception of time. The aim of this study was to gain deeper insight into the perception of time from the perspective of patients with brain cancer as they pass through the Danish Integrated Brain Cancer Pathway at a university hospital in Denmark.

METHODS: Data were generated by shadowing six patients and relatives during their visit to and hospitalisation in a neurosurgical department.

RESULTS: Through one constructed case, three perspectives of time were identified. The patient's perception of time during his illness, the healthcare system's perception of time and, finally, an ethical time perspective. The analysis showed a discrepancy between patients' and healthcare professionals' perception of time. Furthermore, the results revealed an ethical time dimension.

CONCLUSIONS: The findings contribute to a better understanding of the perception of time among seriously ill patients and may further healthcare professionals' awareness of how to support patients in achieving a more meaningful use of their remaining lifetime.
