Full Description

The objective is to implement and examine the outcomes of a simplified relaxation intervention, Assisted Relaxation Therapy (ART), for lung cancer patients who experience insomnia symptoms and other sleep difficulties. This intervention includes using a smartphone application. A variety of surveys will be used to track the interventions' efficacy throughout the study. To test these interventions, the investigators will recruit participants (n=20) from a weekly oncology patient list located within the University of Pennsylvania. Participants with a history of lung cancer who are recruited into the study must have a smartphone. Participants will use the ART intervention over the course of 2 weeks and will receive surveys at enrollment (D0), end of intervention (D14) and 2 weeks post-intervention (D30). Missing data will be handled using imputation methods. The investigators will analyze the data using statistical programs to determine progress throughout the study.
