Abstract

Distress is a complex condition, which affects a significant percentage of cancer patients and may lead to depression, anxiety, sadness, suicide and other forms of psychological morbidity. Compelling evidence supports screening for distress as a means of facilitating early intervention and subsequent improvements in psychological well‐being and overall quality of life. Nevertheless, despite the existence of evidence‐based and easily administered screening tools, for example, the Distress Thermometer, routine screening for distress is yet to achieve widespread implementation. Efforts are intensifying to utilise innovative, cost‐effective methods now available through emerging technologies in the informatics and computational arenas.
