Dr Joachim Weis - Universität Freiburg, Freiburg, Germany

Dr Weis talks to ecancertv at SIOG 2014 about his work looking at the coping process of cancer patients in dealing with the distress of diagnosis and treatment. In addition to pain relief, he stresses the significance of cancer-related fatigue and depression and outlines some of the steps which can help alleviate the strain of such issues. For example, identifying the times when a patient is less fatigued and encouraging exercise, as well as relaxation techniques and other psychosocial forms of support.
