Chronic medical illnesses such as cancer are characterized by a notably increased prevalence of depression. Furthermore, several challenges may arise in managing the depression in these patients, given their anti-cancer regimens. Here, we present a short learning module that will help clinicians better recognize and diagnose patients with cancer who may also have depression, as well as develop treatment plans tailored to their concomitant anti-cancer regimens.
