Biofeedback Training in Patients With Advanced Lung Cancer - A Pilot Study


Biofeedback Training in Patients With Advanced Lung Cancer - A Pilot Study




This is a pilot study to test the hypothesis that biofeedback-mediated stress management (BFSM) training can be used to reduce distress and enhance quality of life in patients with non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). Most patients with advanced NSCLC have significant physical symptoms, but even those who do not have physical symptoms have high levels of anxiety and depression.
