About

This randomized controlled trial will evaluate, among 54 stage early stage lung cancer patients, whether a behavioral intervention versus an educational Control group results in improved function at 6-months.

Full description

This is a two arm randomized controlled trial that will evaluate, among 54 stage 1 non-small cell lung cancer patients, whether induction of positive affect vs. an educational Control group, results in improved function as assessed by the 6-minute Walk Test. Our primary outcome will be a within-patient change in the 6-Minute Walk Test at 6 months.
