The Big Five Health-relevant Risk-factors: How differnet patients cope with cancer

John Magnus Roos magnus.roos@veryday.com

Abstract

Personality factors have gained increased interest in cancer research during the last decade. The patient´s personality seems to influence coping strategies related to the outcome of cancer, such as reaction to the diagnosis, side effect of treatments and the impact of cancer on daily life. The main challenge will be to support clinicians in identifying vulnerable patients who are likely to have poorer coping strategies and therefore poorer cancer outcomes.
