Chemotherapy and Mindfulness Relaxation: A Randomized Trial at M. D. Anderson Cancer Center and M. D. Anderson Community Clinical Oncology Program
MD Anderson Study Status
RATIONALE: Mindfulness relaxation, a technique to help patients quiet their thoughts and relax their bodies before and during chemotherapy, may reduce or prevent nausea and vomiting. It may also help improve mental health, quality of life, and immune function in patients receiving chemotherapy. PURPOSE: This randomized clinical trial is studying mindfulness relaxation to see how well it works compared to relaxing music or standard symptom management education in treating patients who are receiving chemotherapy for newly diagnosed solid tumors.
