Samenvatting

Screening for psychological distress in patients with cancer is
currently being debated in the British Journal of Cancer. Screening
has been recommended, as elevated levels of distress have been
consistently observed and clinicians tend to overlook the need of
psychological support (Carlson et al, 2012; Carlson et al, 2013;
National Comprehensive Cancer Network, 2013). On the other hand,
it has been argued that screening should not be implemented, as the
true benefit of screening and subsequent treatment of psychological
distress is far from being definitively proven (Coyne, 2013).
Recent findings on human resilience in the face of potentially
traumatic events (PTEs) provide a new perspective on detecting
and treating psychological distress in patients with cancer. Humans
show strong resilience in the face of potentially traumatic events,
such as cancer diagnosis and treatment (Bonanno et al, 2011). This
observation leads us to propose two alternative approaches towards
detecting and treating psychological distress in patients with
cancer: ‘screening for psychological distress’ and ‘supporting
resilience and case finding’.
