Featured Issue: European Journal of General Medicine Vol.7 No.3

This is the first time we are featuring European Journal of General Medicine on our blog! The European Journal of General Medicine is a peer-reviewed medical journal published by the Medical Investigations Society.

The issue we are featuring today, no.3 of vol.7, includes "Coping, Anxiety and Depression in Turkish Patients with Cancer" by Karabulutlu et al. In this study, the levels of depression and anxiety were examined to determine appropriate strategies for helping cancer patients cope with stress. 

The study was conducted in July and August of 2005, and involved 96 cancer patients at the Medical Oncology Clinic of Ataturk University Research Hospital.
The qualitative research gathered was on the patients' demographic, type of treatment, and duration of the disease and treatment. Two scales, Hospital Anxiety and Depression Scale (HAD) and Strategies for Coping with Stress Scale were also used in the study.
The results showed that 61.5% of the patients studied had anxiety, and 81.3% had depression.
