People who have had two or more bouts of cancer are being invited to participate in a Stanford study of an online workshop for cancer survivors. The six-week program, which was designed to help patients deal with their unique problems and concerns, brings together about 25 patients online and is led by former cancer patients.
"Cancer: Thriving and Surviving" is an adaptation of a chronic-disease-management program that has been shown in studies to be helpful in improving health and well-being for participants. For this study, Stanford researchers will examine the cancer program's effectiveness.
Participants can live anywhere in the United States but need computer and e-mail access. They must have had a recurring or second cancer and have completed major treatment in the past five years. Potential volunteers should e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
