Abstract

The present study explored the similarities and differences in patterns of psychological distress, coping strategies and social support of 41 cancer patients who dropped out of a psychosocial therapy program and 20 patients who completed the program as agreed. The findings indicated that only depression, out of nine brief symptom inventory subscales, predicted which patients would complete the program, i.e. patients with a high level of depression tended to complete the psychosocial intervention program.
