Abstract The research progress made in the 1980s on understanding psychologic outcomes after gynecologic cancer has continued since the 1986 conference. To facilitate future intervention research, a model for predicting the risk for psychologic and behavioral morbidity is provided. This model clarifies psychologic, behavioral, and medical routes leading to a reduced quality of life. Although few intervention studies have been conducted with gynecologic patients, studies in other patients with cancer suggest that psychologic interventions can reduce emotional distress, enhance coping, and improve general adjustment and sexual functioning, in particular. The final section of this article discusses future research directions and challenges institutions and study groups to support quality-of-life research for women with gynecologic cancer.
