Oncology Nurse Advisor - "Hypnosis Therapy Decreases Fatigue in Breast Cancer Patients"
Breast cancer patients receiving radiotherapy showed decreased fatigue as a result of cognitive behavioral therapy plus hypnosis, according to a new study. The study, recently published in the Journal of Clinical Oncology was led by Guy Montgomery, PhD, Associate Professor of Oncological Sciences and Psychiatry, and Director of Integrative Behavioral Medicine at The Mount Sinai Hospital. "These results support cognitive behavioral therapy plus hypnosis as an evidence-based complementary intervention to control fatigue in patients undergoing radiotherapy for breast cancer," said Dr. Montgomery.
