THE EFFECTS OF YOGA ON QUALITY OF LIFE AMONG A POPULATION OF OVARIAN/ FALLOPIAN TUBE/ PRIMARY PERITONEAL CANCER PATIENTS RECEIVING CHEMOTHERAPY: A FEASIBILITY STUDY
Allocation: Non-Randomized, Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Supportive Care
All patients included in the study will be assessed for response to treatment; the primary outcome is change in QoL domains after yoga class intervention. Planned subgroup analysis: stratification by participation category
Pilot study to establish the feasibility of a yoga program & estimate the effect size of a yoga intervention on QoL in patients with epithelial ovarian, fallopian tube & primary peritoneal cancer receiving chemotherapy for the treatment.The goal for each individual question on the questionnaire is to have a 90-95% completion rate. The validated instruments: FACT-O, FACIT-F, FACIT-Sp, CES-D, PROMIS, and PSQI will be scored according to their respective guidelines, and then paired t-tests will be used to compare the pre-yoga and post-yoga means. Participant completion will be recorded in one of three ways: complete, meaning the participant attended 5 or more yoga sessions and filled out all the required surveys; partially complete, meaning the participant attended 1-4 sessions, and/or did not fill out all the required surveys; and did not participate, meaning the participant attended 0 sessions. All analyses will be stratified for participation category.
