ABSTRACT The purpose of this trial was to evaluate the effect of a Web-based self-report assessment and educational intervention on symptom distress during cancer therapy. This review aimed to quantify the benefit of patient-based educational interventions in the management of cancer pain. We undertook a systematic review and meta-analysis of experimentally randomised and non-randomised controlled clinical trials. We found equivocal evidence for the effect of education on self-efficacy but no significant benefit on medication adherence or on reducing interference with daily activities. Patient-based educational interventions can result in modest but significant benefits in the management of cancer pain and are probably underused alongside more traditional analgesic approaches. Mental and behavioral health promotion prevention treatment and management-oriented interventions that are delivered via the internet or other electronic technologies with or without human support often referred to as e-Interventions can overcome many barriers of access that are commonly encountered in our healthcare system. This online support intervention showed improved QoL outcomes in participants as compared to those in a control group who did not access the intervention. However the intervention focused on psycho-education and support rather than skills in coping with the experience of cancer diagnosis treatment and recovery.
