Evaluation of a tele-health intervention for delivering psychosocial support to people with brain tumour and their families

Project Member(s): Chambers, S.

Funding or Partner Organisation: National Health & Medical Research Council (NHMRC Partnership Projects)

Start year: 2018

Summary: Researchers will partner with the Cancer Council Queensland and Princess Alexandra Hospital to evaluate a telehealth format of the Making Sense of Brain Tumour (MAST) program. We aim to determine whether the Tele-MAST program improves the mood and quality of life of people with brain tumour to a greater extent than routine care. This will help to establish an effective and easy to access psychological support program that can be integrated into existing statewide cancer support services.
