This final chapter discusses (a) the limitations of evidence-based practice (EBP) both generally in mental health care and specifically in psycho-oncology; (b) current challenges to the dissemination and implementation (D&I) of EBP; (c) the interdependence of EBP and D&I; and (d) the future of EBP in psycho-oncology with its focus on interprofessional collaboration, the increased use of technology, and an updated and proposed transdisciplinary EBP model. Best available evidence indicates that it is possible to provide effective psychosocial health service interventions for adult cancer patients. However, significant provider, training, and health care system barriers remain to be addressed before EBP will become standard practice in the real world of busy oncology practice settings.
