|Issue Date:||2017||Publisher:||Wiley-Blackwell||Source:||European journal of cancer care, 2017, v. 26, no. 6, e12538, p. 2 How to cite?||Journal:||European journal of cancer care||Abstract:||This paper reports finding from a nested qualitative study designed to elicit the views and perceptions of those who participated in a randomised controlled feasibility trial testing a non-pharmacological intervention, Respiratory Distress Symptom Intervention (RDSI), for the management of the breathlessness–cough–fatigue symptom cluster in lung cancer. Semi-structured interviews were conducted with 11 lung cancer patients, three caregivers and seven researchers involved in recruitment, consent, RDSI training and delivery and participant follow-up. Thematic analysis identified key considerations including: the importance of informed consent emphasising commitment to completion of paperwork and raising awareness of potential sensitivities relating to content of questionnairesMergeCell ensuring screening for the presence of symptoms reflects the language used by patientsMergeCell appreciation of the commitment required from participants to learn intervention techniques and embed them as part of everyday lifeMergeCell conduct of interviews with patients who decline to participateMergeCell and conduct of serial interviews with those receiving RDSI to further inform its routine implementation into clinical practice. This study will inform the development of a fully powered follow-on trial testing the hypothesis that RDSI plus usual care is superior to usual care alone in the effective management of this symptom cluster in lung cancer.||URI:||http://hdl.handle.net/10397/74422||ISSN:||0961-5423||EISSN:||1365-2354||DOI:||10.1111/ecc.12538||Rights:||This is an open access article under the terms of the Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivs License, which permits use and distribution in any medium, provided the original work is properly cited, the use is non-commercial and no modifications or adaptations are made.
