ABSTRACT
The article discusses the role of screening tools on the treatment of depression, which is said to be a symptom in advanced cancer. Because patients are not eager to describe their depressive symptoms, staff need to know how to recognize depression. One method of assessing depression is through the use of rating scales, which include the Hospital Anxiety and Depression Scale and the Zung Self-rating Scale. Key information on various options for the treatment of depression are also provided.
