A Self-Management Energy Conservation Program for Cancer-Related Fatigue

2017-09-13 23:53:21 | BioPortfolio


The purpose of this pilot study is to examine a 12-week self-management energy conservation program (ECAM)'s effects on fatigue, and secondarily on sleep, physical activity, anxiety and depression, self-efficacy, and beliefs about fatigue in a group of Thai women with breast cancer who are undergoing chemotherapy. We will also evaluate how well women like the intervention, how easy it is to use and whether women will do the activities.


Cancer-related fatigue is a distressing and multidimensional symptom. Research in the US has explored the efficacy of energy conservation interventions for fatigue and related symptoms but no previous ECAM programs have been tested in Thailand.
