A Stress Management And Resilience Program

anne-kirchoff-study

The Massachusetts General Hospital Cancer Center is conducting a research study to see what kinds of stress management training and relaxation practices would be most useful for adolescent and young adult cancer survivors.

  • What does it involve?  You’ll be asked to take part in a 90-minute focus group discussion with other adolescent and young adult cancer survivors to explore your preferences for adapting their existing stress management and resiliency program (3RP) to meet your specific needs.  You will be compensated for your participation.
  • Who can participate?  They are looking for people who are least 16 years old, were diagnosed with cancer between ages 15 – 23, and who have completed cancer treatment within the past 5 years.
  • How do I join?  If you would like to learn more about this research study, please tell your oncologist or contact the study coordinator, Emily Walsh at 617.724.1414 or at EWalsh8@mgh.harvard.edu

Thank you for considering a research study!  You will be helping gather important information about a training that may help other patients in the future.
