Access to appropriate and timely psychosocial care can be challenging for many people diagnosed with cancer, particularly for those living in rural or regional locations1. There is growing interest in delivery of clinical services using internet enabled technology, particularly the delivery of psychological interventions online2. This symposium aims to explore the growing body of research investigating the feasibility, acceptability and efficacy of delivering online psychological interventions in the context of cancer care. This symposium will explore the challenges and benefits of delivering psychological interventions online through the presentation of five different online psychological interventions across different patient groups.
