Summary of "A Feasible and Acceptable Multicultural Psychosocial Intervention Targeting Symptom Management in the Context of Advanced Breast Cancer."

Advanced breast cancer patients around the world experience high symptom burden (i.e., distress, pain, fatigue) and are in need of psychosocial interventions that target symptom management. This study examined the feasibility, acceptability, and engagement of a psychosocial intervention that uses cognitive-behavioral strategies along with mindfulness and values-based activity to enhance patients' ability to manage symptoms of advanced disease in a cross-cultural setting (United States, Singapore). Pre- to post-treatment outcomes for distress, pain, and fatigue were compared between intervention recipients to waitlisted controls.
