Metastatic breast cancer patients experience high levels of fatigue interference with activities, mood, and cognition. The objective of this randomized controlled trial is to examine the impact of telephone-based Acceptance and Commitment Therapy on fatigue interference in this population. This trial is supported by R01CA230542 from the National Cancer Institute.

Many advanced gastrointestinal cancer patients experience high levels of fatigue and other symptoms that affect their quality of life and that of their family caregivers. The objective of this randomized controlled trial is to examine the impact of telephone-based Acceptance and Commitment Therapy on patient fatigue interference with functioning and family caregiver stress. This trial is supported by R21CA235788 from the National Cancer Institute.

  • Examining relations between Acceptance and Commitment Therapy constructs (e.g., mindfulness, acceptance, values-based living) and symptoms in adults with cancer
  • Examining relations between cognitive functioning and physical activity in older breast cancer survivors
  • Examining health behaviors and caregiving burden in family caregivers of cancer patients
  • Developing a new measure of self-compassion with cancer patient input
  • Developing a new measure of advanced cancer patient symptom management goals and priorities
