Integrated Telehealth or In-Person Palliative Care in Improving Quality of Life in Patients with Advanced Non-small Cell Lung Cancer
Multiple Cancer Types
This randomized clinical trial studies how well integrated telehealth or in-person palliative care works in improving quality of life in patients with non-small lung cancer that has spread to other places in the body (advanced). Early involvement in palliative care may lesson many of the distressing physical and emotional symptoms and help patients and their families cope with serious illness as well as improve patients’ and their loved ones’ experience with cancer. Integrated telehealth palliative care involves patients meeting with palliative care clinicians using secure video-conferencing technology. It is not yet known whether giving integrated telehealth or in-person palliative care works better for patients and their families in improving quality of life.
