(1/3) American Cancer Society Award lecture. Psychological care of patients: psycho-oncology's contribution.

The centuries-old stigma attached to cancer precluded patients' being told their diagnoses, and thus, delayed any exploration of how they dealt with their illness. This situation changed in the United States in the 1970s when patients began to be told their cancer diagnosis, permitting the first formal study of the psychological impact of cancer. However, a second and equally long-held stigma attached to mental illness has been another barrier and this has kept patients from being willing to acknowledge their psychological problems and to seek counseling. This "double stigma" has slowed the development of psycho-oncology. However, we began to see rapid changes occurring in the last quarter of the 20th century. Valid assessment instruments were developed which were used in well-designed studies. Data from these studies and clinical observations led to increased recognition that psychosocial services are needed by many patients and provide significant assistance in coping with illness. Psycho-oncology has two dimensions: first, the study of the psychological reaction of patients at all stages of the disease, as well as of the family and oncology staff; second, exploring the psychological, social, and behavioral factors that impact on cancer risk and survival. Psycho-oncology now has a recognized role within the oncologic community through clinical care, research, and training as it relates to prevention of cancer through lifestyle changes, evaluation of quality of life, symptom control, palliative care and survivorship. Presently, there are sufficient research studies from which standards of care have been established. Both evidence and consensus-based clinical practice guidelines have been promulgated. It now possible to monitor the quality of existing psychosocial services by using these benchmarks of quality that have evolved in recent years.  (+info)

(3/3) General practitioner referral rates to district psychiatry and psychology services.

The number of referrals made to a district psychiatry service by each of the local general practitioners over a five year period was counted and a large variation in general practitioner referral rate was found. Ten referral letters from each of the general practitioners were independently assessed for the amount of detail included and a mean score for each general practitioner obtained. A significant negative correlation was found between referral rate and amount of detail in referral letters, that is low referrers wrote very detailed letters. The procedure was repeated over an 18 month period including referrals to the district psychology service. Referral rate to the psychologists was positively correlated with detailed referral letters, that is those who referred many patients to the psychologists wrote detailed letters. This study has indicated a wide variation in the use of the psychiatry and psychology services by general practitioners which cannot be explained solely on the basis of a general referral tendency. It is likely that constructive liaison between psychiatrists and general practitioners, especially those who refer a large number of patients, could enhance the care of patients with psychiatric disorder in general practice.  (+info)
