Clinical Trial Summary

Evaluate the impact and satisfaction of Online Mindfulness Meditation (OMM) on anxiety, pain, fatigue, trauma, and sleep in cancer survivors.


Clinical Trial Description

Through previous research, mindfulness meditation has been linked to decreases in anxiety, increased pain tolerance, better mood, and improved quality of life, in both healthy and medical populations. Although mindfulness meditation is well promoted both clinically and in the media, finding ways to promote engagement in and fidelity to the intervention, in a format that is accessible for cancer survivors is crucial, as the availability of resources and appreciation of the benefits does not necessarily lead to behavior change.

With many more people surviving cancer than in previous decades, there is an opportunity to act on the residual effects of cancer diagnosis and treatment, and with the prevalence of technology ever increasing, online interventions have become more frequently delivered and have a particular utility for this population. Physical and geographic limitations could prevention cancer survivors from accessing psychosocial interventions. Whether the repeated beneficial findings of face-to-face training in mindfulness meditation will be found in an online environment is an open and timely question. ;
