Eyles C, Leydon GM, Hoffman CJ, Copson ER, Prescott P, Chorozoglou M, Lewith G - Integr Cancer Ther (2014)

Bottom Line: Participants found the course acceptable and reported many cumulative and ongoing benefits.MBSR was acceptable to MBC patients, who perceived benefits such as improved anxiety and QoL; but the MBSR course requires a considerable time commitment.There is scope to tailor the intervention so that it is less intensive.

fig1-1534735414546567: Flow of participants through study

Mentions: One hundred women were approached to join the study. Twenty women (20%) agreed to join the study and were recruited (the flow of participants through the study is shown in Figure 1), with 19 completing (1 dropped out after baseline measures and before joining an MBSR course due to illness progression). Eighty (80%) women did not join the study. Of these 27 (33.75%) declined to participate for unspecified reasons; 19 (23.75%) were excluded because they were too ill to participate; 13 (16.25%) felt it was too much commitment; 12 (15%) had travel problems; and for 9 (11.25%) women the sessions clashed with treatment or sessions were held at a time when they anticipated side effects from treatment.
