Meeting Abstract

Fear of cancer recurrence: Theoretical frameworks and intervention strategies



Butow P, Sharpe L & Ozakinci G (2016) Fear of cancer recurrence: Theoretical frameworks and intervention strategies. International Journal of Behavioral Medicine, 23 (Suppl 1), pp. S1-S1.

This workshop explains several theoretical frameworks for fear of recurrence, followed by the provision of training in methods to reduce the fear of recurrence in terms of attentional focus, mindfulness training, cognitive and meta-cognitive strategies, as well as education and encouragement strategies for screening and monitoring of cancer recurrence. Both clinicians and researchers will benefit from this workshop. Although framed in the cancer context, the theories and strategies are relevant to any disease with a risk of relapse or progression.
