Application of tailored psychosocial therapies to reduce distress and depression in cancer patients: a randomised trial (2010–2013)

Cancer poses an emotional burden but too often patients fail to obtain the help that would improve their ability to cope. This study aims to improve patient access to evidence-based care to reduce distress and depression and anxiety. The study involves comprehensive assessment of patients so that they receive psychosocial care tailored to their needs, delivered by specially-trained health professionals who receive ongoing support from experienced clinicians.
