Humuor. A proposal with oncology patients (by Elisa Cardinale) - The increasing interest in humour has been associated to research results which showed that laughter improves people’s well-being, especially during diseases or stressful conditions. On the basis of the most recent studies, we have proposed an hypothesis of research that aims at improving life conditions of oncology patients, paying particular attention to the evaluation of patients’ willingness to humour and to the possibility of restraining the psychological symptoms through it and making the hospitalization process easier. Keywords: humour, oncology, well-being
