Clinical Trial Summary

To determine the feasibility of implementing a culturally adapted mind-body intervention (Meditation-Based Support-Adapted; MBS-A) as a supportive care strategy in Black patients diagnosed with a stage III-IV solid malignancy. To target the specific needs of Black advanced cancer patients, we will first conduct formative research that includes quantitative surveys and in-depth interviews of patients and their primary caregivers. The purpose of this formative research is to determine the intervention format for the MBS-A program (family- vs group-based) that promises the greatest likelihood of success and to solicit input on the original MBS intervention regarding content that needs adaptation. Once the intervention format is determined and content adapted, we will conduct a pilot randomized controlled trial (RCT) to examine the feasibility of the MBS-A intervention vs. a dose-matched attention control (AC) group receiving a psychoeducation intervention.

Clinical Trial Description

Primary Objectives: The purpose of this RCT is to thoroughly determine the feasibility of the overall RCT design as well as specific intervention procedures in this underserved population to inform if a large efficacy trial is warranted. Our results will lead to future NIH R01 applications in which efficacy and mechanisms of the interventions will be tested using fully powered samples of Black patients with advanced cancer including multicenter trials. The long-term goal is to establish the effectiveness of the MBS-A intervention and widely disseminate the intervention. Ultimately, the intervention is intended to improve cancer control and reduce the double disparity in this underserved patient population. We propose the following specific aims: 1. Systematically and culturally adapt a meditation-based support intervention (MBS-A) and finalize the intervention components and delivery format that meet the needs of Black patients with advanced cancer. 2. Identify the feasibility of conducting a supportive-care RCT in Black patients with advanced cancer as determined by recruitment and retention rates, randomization and blinding procedures, and intervention delivery. 3. Identify the feasibility of implementing the MBS-A and AC interventions as determined by session attendance, intervention acceptability, and treatment fidelity. ;
