Staffing requirements in German psycho-oncology according to type of care (liaison, consultation model)
On the basis of German epidemiological studies on distress in oncological patients (burden and desire for support) as well as empirical data on the volume of services provided by psycho-oncological staff (care according to the liaison model versus the consultation model), estimates of demand are presented.
The text is in German language, but has an extended abstract.
The manuscript was reviewed, but rejected with regard to its inappropriate "polemics" and because it is neither an original work nor a review and therefore does not fit into "any category" of the journal, even though the subject matter was recognised as important.
The reader may form his or her own judgement here.
