Web-based Mindfulness Meditation in Reducing Distress in Participants With Metastatic Gastrointestinal Cancer and Their Caregivers
open to eligible people ages 18 years and up
This trial studies how well web-based mindfulness meditation works in reducing distress in both participants with gastrointestinal cancer that has spread to other parts of the body, and their caregivers. Web-based mindfulness meditation, which uses audio exercises and interactive webinars taught by trained meditation instructors, may help participants with GI cancer and their caregivers reduce distress and improve their quality of life.

The goal of the proposed intervention, called LEAF (Life Enhancing Activities for Family Caregivers) is to reduce burden and increase well-being in Alzheimer's Disease caregivers through the practice of positive emotion skills. We will evaluate two methods of online delivery of LEAF: facilitated and self-guided and compare them to an emotion-reporting waitlist control condition. If effective, the LEAF program can be disseminated to Alzheimer caregivers nation wide.
