Supportive Care Needs and Resource Assessment in Cancer Patients


About this study

This study is investigating the supportive care needs, and levels of social support and distress, in adult patients who are receiving or have recently completed treatment for cancer. Research has shown that when cancer patients are supported with resources to help them cope with the cancer and treatment experience, that they are better able to tolerate and cope with their treatment and its impact.
