The focus of this symposium is on online interventions in the field of psycho-oncology. This research was conducted in Australia and Canada and has the potential to inform the more widespread delivery of interventions to persons with cancer and their families. The interventions discussed focus on reducing psychological distress in people with cancer and/or their partners. The efficacy of psychosocial support has been repeatedly reported in the cancer setting. However, access to evidence-based and timely psychosocial support is often limited. Online interventions have the potential to help services disseminate psychosocial support as a supplement to existing face-to-face services. In the first paper, results are presented of a randomised controlled trial of an online intervention for men with prostate cancer (My Road Ahead). In the second paper the focus is transdiagnostic internet-delivered cognitive behaviour therapy for cancer survivors in the re-entry phase. The third paper is on the development of an online intervention (e-TC) to reduce anxiety and depression in survivors of testicular cancer. Finally, a paper is presented concerning the development of an online intervention for partners of men with prostate cancer.
