Résumé
Aims: (i) To describe the prevalence and profile of newly diagnosed cancer patients motivated for psychotherapy and (ii) To evaluate its effectiveness.Methods: Between 2006 and 2009, every new patient of the Oncology Service of the University Hospital Lausanne was informed of the opportunity to benefit from psychotherapeutic support. Patients were randomly assigned to an immediate or delayed (4 month waiting list) psychodynamicoriented psychotherapeutic intervention, formalized as short intervention (1-4 sessions) or brief psychotherapy (16 sessions). Patients with no interest were asked to participate in an observational group. Socio-demographic and medical data, anxiety and depression (HADS, SCL-90), alexithymia (TAS) and quality of life were evaluated for all groups at baseline and 1, 4, 8 and 12-months follow-up. Results: Of 1973 patients approached, 1024 were excluded, mainly because of organisational reasons (living too far away, interfering treatments, etc.), ageN75 years, life expectancyb1 year or language difficulties. One fourth (N=530) refused to participate and 229 patients accepted to be followed in the observational group. Patients interested in psychological support (N=190, 94 in immediate and 96 in delayed intervention) were younger, predominantly female and symptomatic (higher depression and anxiety scores); 56% engaged in 1-4 and 44% in 16 sessions.Conclusions: The naturalistic design of this study revealed relevant questions regarding (i) the design of such studies (untargeted intervention, choice of measurement, etc.), (ii) the type of interventions (pro-active approaches of men, those unable to speak the language or who can not leave home) and (iii) the profile of patients accepting support. A complete analysis will be presented at the congress.Keywords: Psychotherapy, psycho-oncology, cancer, methodology, interventions
