Summary

Although the five-year survival rate of people diagnosed with lung cancer is increasing, excessive symptom burden during the period of survivorship remains a prevalent and complex problem for survivors and their family members. The growing number of lung cancer survivors warrants the development of innovative and unique evidence-based intervention programs designed to improve their health outcomes. This study, Breathe Easier, is lung cancer specific, targets multiple symptoms and lifestyle behaviors will test a mindfulness-based intervention that includes breathing retraining exercises, mindfulness-based meditation, yoga for varying skill levels, and participant interaction designed specifically to address issues of importance to survivors of lung cancer and their family members.
