Viewing Cancer Survivor Stories:
Changes in Emotional Distress and Heart Rate Variability (HRV) Patterns
The purpose of this project is to determine how cancer patients emotionally respond to hearing other survivor’s stories. It is common for cancer patients to experience emotional distress during treatment and through survivorship. In addition, some racial and ethnic groups, Latino Americans, African Americans, or Korean Americans, may experience even more emotional distress due to multiple factors. The goal of this project is to understand how cancer patients emotionally respond to cancer survivor’s stories and if certain elements of the story are able to produce different effects such as increased resilience or emotional acceptance.
The project focuses on adults (21 or older) who:
Eligibility Process: The first step in seeing if interested patients are eligible is to participate in a 3-minute phone screening. One of the research team members will ask a series of questions to determine if the caller meets study criteria. If the participant is eligible, they will be asked to come to the research team office at the ASU Downtown Phoenix campus at a time that is convenient for them. Before participating in the study, we will ask that a consent form is signed and further instruction on the study will be given.
