The detection and management of emotional distress in cancer patients: the views of health‐care professionals

Publication Summary

Objective: Emotional distress (ED) is an under‐diagnosed problem in cancer patients and over the last decade a number of national guidelines have recommended an assessment and management model based on appropriate health professional response to a hierarchy of patient need. This study explores the views of cancer professionals regarding their current roles and responsibilities in the detection and management of ED, use of screening tools and access to expert psychological support.
