Summary

The work of A.J. Cunningham has created new perspectives for extension of survival through psychological intervention in patients with advanced cancer. Therapeutic techniques exploiting unique subjective psychic and social experiences may be particularly helpful at the time when life of the patient is threatened by an incurable disease. Psychological therapy should be based on an individual plan for living with cancer. Novel qualitative research and therapeutic methods need to be developed.

K e y w o r d s: psychological help for cancer patients – extension of survival – metastatic cancer.
