Abstract

type:text

The purpose of this study was to clarify clinical psychologists' practical problems of services and training in working with cancer patients and their family members. In 2007, a questionnaire on services and training systems was sent to 205 clinical psychologists in palliative care, for which 66 respondents(32.1%) returned completed questionnaires. 40(62.5%) belonged to general hospitals, 13(20.3%) belonged to university hospitals, and 5(7.8%) belonged to cancer centers. The main results of the survey were as follows: (a) 50(80.1%) provided consultation with palliative care team members; (b) 51(78.5%) provided counseling and psychotherapy for patients with cancer; (c) 42(64.6%) provided psychological interventions for their families; (d) 41(66.1%) provided psychological supports for other palliative care providers who faced issues of burnout and bereavement; and (e) 42(68.9%) were unsatisfied with less chances of training in/out their hospitals, and only 14(21.9%) were supervised by faculty of certified graduate schools of clinical psychology. Finally, several methods to solve problems in training and supervising were proposed and discussed.
