Lung Cancer Clinical Trial
Project PEER: Understanding the Lung Cancer Patient ExperiEnce in the Real-World Setting
LUNGevity Foundation, a non-profit lung cancer organization, wants to learn about living with lung cancer from the point of view of people with lung cancer and their family and friends who provide care. To do this, we have an online study designed to better understand how treatments people living with lung cancer receive impact their quality of life. Participants will complete surveys once a month for 12 months.

PEER is an international study, that is Institutional Review Board (IRB) approved and General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) compliant.
The study objective is to collect longitudinal data to facilitate a rigorous understanding of the diagnostic and treatment experiences of people diagnosed with lung cancer and to identify determinants of treatment heterogeneity. Study data will be used to understand the diagnostic and treatment pathways, explore patient-experience data in different domains (financial impact/quality of life/symptoms) and test the hypothesis that different classes of therapies (chemotherapy/ immunotherapy/ targeted therapy/ surgery/ radiation) impact patient experience (eg., physical function).
Study participants will consent and register for the study and complete an initial baseline survey. They will then be followed for 12 months and receive a monthly survey (11 surveys in total) via email. The development of the surveys was guided by input from patients, clinicians, FDA experts, and incorporates questions from existing patient-reported outcomes (PRO) measures.
Summarized study results will also be posted on LUNGevity's website. External researchers will be able to apply to have limited access to de-identified data.
