Digital psycho-oncology interventions are playing an increasingly important role in cancer care however few have been developed for the specific needs of patients with advanced disease.
To address this gap, clinical psychologist Associate Professor Lisa Beatty and her team at Flinders University, have co-designed Finding My Way – Advanced, a six-module self-guided Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) -based program for women with metastatic breast cancer.
Associate Professor Beatty will summarise the digital psycho-oncology field, explain the development of Finding My Way-Advanced; share pilot findings and outline a multi-site clinical trial that is currently in progress.
