Prof Mari Lloyd-Williams – University of Liverpool, UK

Prof Mari Lloyd-Williams outlines the key findings of a study assessing the level of depression in patients with serious cancer.


The study, carried out by the Academic Palliative and Supportive Care Studies Group at the University of Liverpool, found that depression was an important symptom in a third of patients and patients with depression had lower survival rates. Prof Lloyd-Williams discusses the implications of the findings and considers the potential role of alternative therapies in the treatment of depression.
