Dr Gary Rodin - Princess Margaret Cancer Centre, Toronto, Canada

Dr Rodin speaks with ecancer at ASCO 2017 about a psychological intervention to help advanced cancer patients manage disease-related anxiety.

He describes the value of offering emotional support to patients throughout their treatment, from first diagnosis through to palliative care, and how these findings sit alongside those presented by Dr Jane Beith for managing fear of disease recurrence and Dr Viviane Hess for a web-based intervention.

Watch Dr Rodin present these results at a press session here, or read more about the study here.
