The ongoing quest for managing cancer distress

28 Oct 2016 3:18 PM | IPOS admin (Administrator)

An article aimed to quantify uptake, adherence to psychological support, and to identify predictors of using each intervention features in the August edition of Psycho-Oncology. This meta-analysis reports how patients appeared more receptive to interventions offered around time of diagnosis, over the telephone and by nurses. On the one hand, authors highlight the need for further research to understand barriers to acceptance of psychological support, particularly because uptake rates were lower for distressed patients. On the other hand, a comment published on Psycho-oncology seems to call into question the effectiveness of “preferable” interventions too. As they all said, more research is truly needed.
