Tailoring interventions for adult cancer survivors
Grant number: 567146 | Funding period: 2009 - 2012

Little is known about how psychological distress differs between survivors. This research aims to develop an evidence-based model for tailoring interventions to different levels of distress and encouraging adoption of recommended health behaviours to improve survivor outcomes.
