Abstract

The emerging convergence of technology and health care is offering new methods and tools to help people cope with stressful upcoming events. To address the distress of chemotherapy and of alopecia in particular, and to facilitate anticipatory coping, we developed a two weeks e-health protocol based on Meichenbaum’s SIT intervention for helping women undergoing chemotherapy to cope with impeding hair loss. The paper aims to present the e-SIT protocol as a promising approach to facilitate coping and adjustment in breast cancer patients.
