Helping Lung Cancer Patients Cope with Their Diagnosis and Treatment

People living with lung cancer often report perceived stigma and regret, as well as poor psychological and physical adjustment. We seek to predict better health and well-being over time among people living with lung cancer. During the 12-week study, we will use questionnaires and interviews to examine the impact of coping, social support, self-compassion, stigma, and regret on depression, physical symptoms, and sleep in lung cancer patients. Understanding predictors of psychological and physical health outcomes will help to develop supportive care outreach efforts geared toward improving quality of life in adults as they adjust to the diagnosis of and treatment for lung cancer over time.
