Evaluation of Dyadic Psychoeducational Interventions for People with Advanced Cancer and their Informal Caregivers (DIAdIC): An international randomized controlled trial

Project description

Support interventions for cancer patients and their family caregivers

Patients with advanced stage cancer require specialised care, and their family caregivers are in need of support. The EU-funded DIAdIC project proposes to develop interventions that target the patient and family caregiver at the same time. These interventions are based on existing concepts and aim to support family involvement, help them psychologically cope with the disease and teach them how to manage disease symptoms. The scientific team will test the effectiveness of this combinatorial approach in an international randomised controlled trial of cancer patients and their caregivers, and also promote a web-based e-health intervention.
