[Psychosocial predictors of utilization of medical rehabilitation services among prostate cancer patients].


Prostate cancer patients often suffer from treatment-associated morbidities which lead to severe physical and mental impairments. Nevertheless, only a relatively small percentage of this patient population uses medical rehabilitation services; there is still a lack of evidence concerning possible factors causing use and non-use of services. Therefore, this study exploratively aims at the identification of predictors of the use of rehabilitation services in a cohort of prostate cancer patients.
