Abstract

The surgical treatment of lung malignancies often results in persistent symptoms, psychosocial distress, and decrements in quality of life (QOL) for cancer patients and their family caregivers (FCGs). The potential benefits of providing patients and FCGs with preparatory education that begins in the preoperative setting have been explored in multiple medical conditions, with positive impact observed on postoperative recovery, psychological distress, and QOL. However, few studies have explored the benefits of preparatory educational interventions to promote self-management in cancer surgery, including lung surgery. This paper describes the systematic approach used in the development of a multimedia self-management intervention to prepare cancer patients and their FCGs for lung surgery. Intervention development was informed by (1) contemporary published evidence on the impact of lung surgery on patients and FCG, (2) our previous research that explored QOL, symptoms, and caregiver burden after lung surgery, (3) the use of the chronic care self-management model (CCM) to guide intervention design, and (4) written comments and feedback from patients and FCGs that informed intervention development and refinement. Pilot-testing of the intervention is in process, and a future randomized trial will determine the efficacy of the intervention to improve patient, FCG, and system outcomes.
