Descriptive Information
Brief Title  ICMJE Pillars4Life Trial
Official Title  ICMJE Pillars4Life Randomized Control Trial
Brief Summary This study aims to explore whether cancer patients can benefit from completing the Pillars4Life online coping program. This randomized control trial will have half its subject completing the program and the other half receiving standard care in order to measure whether the program is beneficial in dealing with stress, anxiety, and particularly chronic pain that often accompany a cancer diagnosis.
Detailed Description

Subjects will complete three online surveys as part of the study. Each subject who completes the first survey will be randomized to either the control group who receive standard care from their care team or to complete the 9-week Pillars4Life curriculum. Subjects completing the Pillars4Life program will select a course day/time that works for them from those offered. Each week the program will send an email approximately 15 minutes before class time with a link. Subjects will click the link to go to the "classroom," where they will enter their name and phone number. The program will call the number provided and the subject will listen to the audio over the phone, while watching the guide and activities in the virtual classroom on their computer. Each class will last about an hour.

All subjects will complete two additional surveys, at approximately 9 weeks and 18 weeks after enrolling in the study.
