  1. Screening for anxiety and depression in women with breast cancer : Psychiatry and medical oncology gear up for managed care.

    Article - En anglais

    In this study, 275 women with breast cancer attending ambulatory breast cancer clinics in two sites were evaluated for psychological distress by using three self-report instruments : a visual analogue scale for psychological distress, the Hospital Anxiety and Depression Scale, and the Brief Symptom Inventory.

    Results suggest that significant psychological distress exists in ambulatory women with breast cancer ; all three instruments effectively measured that level of distress.

    Implications for the use of these instruments in educating oncological staffmembers, documenting need for psychiatric services in a period of capitation, and providing quality assurance evaluations of psychiatric services are discussed.
