What often happens when you are diagnosed with cancer is that you feel as if you have lost control of a great deal, if not most, of your life,” McMahon says, referring to the nine-month pilot study that involves 30 breast cancer patients. McMahon, who, along with her team, provides psychology support to the oncology patients at Cooper, is aware of the impact of integrating behavioral health into cancer care. “Through this project, I’m hoping that it moves the patient from being a passive recipient of their medical care to being an active participant in their medical care,” she says.
