Description: After primary treatment of cancer, patients face the task to get their lives back in order, which is called the re-entry phase. Patients face emotional, physical, social and practical challenges. Patients with stage III melanoma may experience specific challenges in the re-entry phase. This population’s treatment is of curative intent, however there is still a relatively high chance of recurrence. A scoping review is conducted to give an overview of the literature concerning the psychosocial wellbeing of patients with stage III melanoma in the re-entry phase. The review concerns melanoma patients stage III in the re-entry phase, with patients who have received adjuvant therapy as a specific subgroup. Psychosocial wellbeing in this review is broadly defined as emotional, psychological and social wellbeing. It includes related constructs concerning the psychosocial impact of cancer such as mental adjustment to cancer, post-traumatic growth, meaning-making and resilience after cancer.
