SEAMLESS Trial Summary

This trial will evaluate a mobile app-based intervention for cancer survivors post-treatment to see if it is an effective way to deliver psychosocial cancer-care.

Who is the study for?
This trial is for English or French-speaking cancer survivors over 18 who've finished primary treatment at least 2 weeks ago. They must be willing to practice mindfulness daily using an app and have a smartphone with internet. It's not for those with cognitive impairments, weekly mindfulness experience, or current major depression.Check my eligibility
What is being tested?
The study tests the 'MBCS Journey' app, a mobile version of Mindfulness-based Cancer Recovery program. Participants are randomly placed in two groups: one starts immediately, while the other waits three months before beginning the four-week mind-body intervention.See study design
What are the potential side effects?
As this is a non-medical intervention focusing on mindfulness through an app, significant side effects are not expected. However, participants may experience emotional discomfort when engaging in self-reflection practices.
