The Multinational Association of Supportive Care in Cancer defines supportive care as “the prevention and management of the adverse effects of cancer and its treatment. This includes management of physical and psychological symptoms and side effects across the continuum of the cancer journey from diagnosis through treatment to post-treatment care. Supportive care aims to improve the quality of rehabilitation, secondary cancer prevention, survivorship, and end-of-life care”.
The aim of this Special Issue is to provide an evidence-based review of common supportive care problems in patients with cancer, to highlight new research and new developments in the area, and to discuss the evolving role of supportive care and oncology (in both developing and developed countries).
We are seeking original papers that are related to new interventions within supportive care for patients with cancer, involving (but not exclusively) the management of problems associated with cancer, management of problems associated with cancer treatment, new models of care, and the use of digital health interventions.
