The article describes an interdisciplinary research project on the management of health-related quality of life of cancer patients. The project involves theoretical and applied studies of health-related quality of life of breast cancer patients, their existential and psychological characteristics. A comparative analysis of the diagnosis of quality of life in medical (objective) and psychological (subjective) assessments was carried out. The key concepts of the existential-psychological model of healing - pain, the existential meaning of pain, illness, fear – were revealed. The possibility and effectiveness of complementation of the medical and existential-psychological models of healing using key concepts - the existential-psychological model of managing health related quality of life, existential meanings of pain, illness, fear – were analyzed. The existential-psychological model of healing is psychometric tools used for describing, explaining and generalizing psychological and existential data on a cancer patient. New psycho-diagnostic tools are used in medical professional practice taking into account requirements of personalized medicine and problems of maintaining health-related quality of life of cancer patients; adjustment of the behavior of cancer patients using existential experiences, reflexivity, trust, responsibility, and health-related quality of life.
