Update: this study is closed to enrollment.
The “Coping with Lymphoma to Enhance Adjustment and Reduce Stress in Survivors (CLEAR Stress)” study is still looking for participants to complete recruitment.
The study, conducted at Weill Cornell Medical College, is looking at Post-traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and Post-traumatic Growth in patients diagnosed with Lymphoma (Non-Hodgkin’s, Hodgkin’s, or Waldenstrom’s Macroglobulinemia). Here is a brief description of the study:
We are looking to see if we can find which patients are more likely to develop PTSD, which patients are more likely to develop Post-traumatic Growth, and we are also looking to see if there is a correlation between the two.
Any patient with a diagnosis of Lymphoma including Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma, Hodgkin’s Lymphoma, or Waldenstrom’s Macroglobulinemia is welcome to participate, regardless of treatment history. The interview will be approximately 60-90 minutes and is given in survey form. This can be completed in-person, over the phone, via mail, or via internet-based surveys.
