This trial studies whether a telephone-based physical activity intervention before and after lung cancer surgery can be provided to older patients and their caregivers. The trial also aims to understand whether patients and family caregivers will be satisfied with the intervention. Participating in physical activity such as walking before and after lung cancer surgery may improve functional status and recovery in older patients and their family caregivers.
I. Administer and determine the feasibility of the perioperative physical activity intervention.
I. To describe patient and family caregiver outcome patterns and trajectory pre- and post-intervention.
II. Using qualitative methods, evaluate the acceptability of the intervention through brief, semi-structured interviews with patients and family caregivers.
Patients and family caregivers complete comprehensive geriatric and functional assessments before surgery. This information is used to develop a personalized walking program plus simple lower extremity strength exercises. The intervention is administered by trained coaches with physical and occupational therapy background. The sessions are delivered by telephone before surgery (30-60 minutes), and on days 2, 7, 14, and 21 after hospital discharge (20-50 minutes). Participants will also receive brief motivational text or email messages (4 times per week between telephone sessions) to provide support, promote physical activity behavior change, and to sustain participant engagement.
Patients and family caregivers are followed up to day 30 after hospital discharge.

Controlled physical activity, more strenuous than at rest, which is performed in order to allow assessment of physiological functions, particularly cardiovascular and pulmonary, but also aerobic capacity. Maximal (most intense) exercise is usually required but submaximal exercise is also used. The intensity of exercise is often graded, using criteria such as rate of work done, oxygen consumption, and heart rate.

A measurement index derived from a modification of standard life-table procedures and designed to take account of the quality as well as the duration of survival. This index can be used in assessing the outcome of health care procedures or services. (BIOETHICS Thesaurus, 1994)
Activities and programs intended to assure or improve the quality of care in either a defined medical setting or a program. The concept includes the assessment or evaluation of the quality of care; identification of problems or shortcomings in the delivery of care; designing activities to overcome these deficiencies; and follow-up monitoring to ensure effectiveness of corrective steps.
