Summary Anxiety is a common experience for people with cancer and particularly for those with advanced disease. On occasion, anxiety can be overwhelming and requires professional management including pharmacological, psychological and behavioural approaches. In advanced cancer, there is limited evidence to guide pharmacological best management. This project will establish the foundational tenets of a developing clinical trial program in the management of this symptom.
