Abstract

About a quarter of cancer survivors suffer from chronic cancer-related fatigue (CCRF). CCRF has a considerable impact on a patient's life because it hinders in daily life activities and causes distress.

To improve the quality and accessibility of interventions for CCRF, this dissertation comprises the evaluation of two different Web-based interventions for reducing CCRF: a physiotherapist guided ambulant activity feedback (AAF) therapy encompassing the use of an accelerometer, and a psychologist guided online mindfulness-based cognitive therapy (eMBCT).

The following topics will be addressed:
1. The effectiveness of these interventions compared to an unguided active control condition receiving psycho-educational e-mails;
2. Specific and generic predictors and working mechanisms of these interventions;
3. Patient experiences with following these interventions.

This project is called 'Fitter na kanker', and concerns applied research initiated by two research departments in clinical psycho-oncology practice centers in the Netherlands: the Helen Downing Instituut (www.hdi.nl) and Roessingh Research and Development (www.rrd.nl).
