The Clinical practice guidelines for the psychosocial care of adults with cancer have been developed by the National Breast Cancer Centre and the National Cancer Control Initiative in response to this need.

The group used the original psychosocial guidelines for women with breast cancer as a template for the expansion of information, and further development of recommendations regarding clinical care of all adult patients with cancer.
