Sciensano's project investigator(s):
Guidelines for the provision of psychosocial care in oncology do not yet exist in Belgium, but there are several reasons for their necessity. If we want cancer patients to receive the same care nationally and across different settings, we are thinking of the importance of training healthcare professionals on this issue, but also of being able to offer practical recommendations and guidelines.
The aim of the project is to implement the recommendations/ guidelines. These forms of implementation will be determined by means of a feasibility study that we will carry out in the final phase of the care project. The effective testing and evaluation of these forms of implementation will take place via an implementation-/upscaling project after completion of the care project.
