Von Hippel-Lindau Disease Clinical Trial
Promoting Stress Management and Resilience Among Individuals With Von Hippel- Lindau Disease
The Relaxation Response Resiliency Program (3RP) has shown efficacy in improving coping and resilience across diverse populations; however, little is known about how it helps individuals manage the challenges of living with a chronic illness. This study proposes to pilot test an adapted version of the 3RP among patients living with VHL.
The 3RP has not been carried out with VHL patients. As such, the investigators are looking to see if an adapted program, tailored to the needs of patients with VHL, is feasible, acceptable, and helpful in improving coping among individuals living with VHL.
This study is a two phase trial. Phase I is descriptive. It is comprised of conducting interviews with patients and caregivers to understand the challenges of living with VHL and patient's programatic needs. This information will be used to tailor the program for patients living with VHL. Phase II is a single-arm feasibility trial that will examine if the adapted program is feasible, acceptable, and helps promote stress management among VHL patients. To these means, we will test the adapted 3RP (3RP-VHL) in up to 40 patients living with VHL. Participants will complete surveys at baseline and post 3RP-VHL program completion. This record will reflect the trial component (Phase II) only, as feasibility and acceptability outcomes will be collected for this phase.
