Manuela Eicher: "Psychosocial Interventions"
Psychosocial support is a fundamental part of cancer care and should be provided to all cancer patients and their families. It includes social & financial, psychological, emotional, spiritual, and functional aspects over the different phases of the cancer trajectory. During the last decades, a growing body of evidence supports a stepped care approach to allow the provision of tailored and targeted interventions to patients and their relatives. This includes screening, assessment and intervention provision. In her talk, Manuela Eicher will discuss the development and implementation of psychosocial interventions in cancer care in the light of person-centred care approaches.
