Abstract

The paper outlines psychosocial problems experienced by cancer patients and the current barriers to service delivery. New models of psychosocial service provision are put forward, emphasizing information, communication and technology aids in an attempt to improve co-ordination of care. The management of cancer patients has evolved greatly over the past decades, and patients are well placed to benefit from the experiences of primary care professionals in the delivery of chronic illness disease management strategies.
