Abstract

The number of people completing curative cancer treatment is increasing. Many cancer survivors report ongoing concerns with physical, psychological and social consequences of treatment. 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.
