A Randomized Trial of a Nurse-Led Palliative Care Intervention for Patients with Newly Diagnosed Lung Cancer.

We conducted a multisite controlled trial in the United States involving patients with any stage or histology of lung cancer to determine the benefits of a telephone-based palliative care intervention delivered by registered nurses experienced in primary palliative care versus usual care. FACT-L TOI 1. 03 – patients in the nurse-led intervention did not experience any improvement in QOL from baseline to three months follow-up or show differences in treatment results by location or cancer stage, in comparison to standard care. Despite several research findings demonstrating the effectiveness of providing specialty palliative care with disease-modifying drugs on QOL among patients with advanced lung cancer patients with advanced lung cancer, this therapy did not significantly improve QOL among patients with stage lung cancer patients. Future research will determine which specific aspects of primary palliative care improve outcomes for patients newly diagnosed with lung cancer.
