In order to provide spiritual and psychological support to cancer patients and thus increase their chances of recovery, a psychological care policy has been developed. The health professional guideline was prepared by the Department of Clinical Psychology and Clinical Psychotherapist at the College of Health Care, in coordination with the Ministry of Human Resources, under the title “Psychological Oncology Care”.

The National Cancer Program (NRP) was compiled by the National Institute of Oncology in 1993, edited by Miklós Kásler and the first of Central European countries. An essential part of the NRP is information, prevention, and, as far as possible, ensuring that members of the risk group participate in screening as many as possible. This is important because according to the National Cancer Registry, the number of new cancer patients has been steadily increasing since 2010.

The various periods of oncological diseases and associated medical treatments present a great physical and mental challenge to patients and their relatives. In addition to physical health, psychological, mental, psychological and social health are among the most important conditions and indicators of quality of life.

The untreated mental state and psychological symptoms of people with malignancies can affect survival by increasing distress, the so-called noxious stress, and decreasing the therapeutic reaction of patients.

Examining the psychological and mental state, and realizing the importance of psychological rehabilitation and mental health care and the increase in demand for it, necessitates the introduction of a new health professional policy.

The aim of the Handbook for Health Professionals is to formulate professional competencies, examine the mental state of oncology patients and improve recognition of mental problems, and increase therapeutic efficacy through the implementation of modern treatment options.
