Current Primary Outcome Measures  ICMJE
 (submitted: March 31, 2021)
  • Change in Parkinson's Disease Questionnaire-39 (PDQ-39) Summary Index [ Time Frame: 0-9 weeks and 0-62 weeks ]
    Parkinson's disease Quality of Life (self-report); range = 0-156. Higher scores = poorer quality of life.
  • Change in Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale-IV (WAIS-IV) Matrix Reasoning Test total score [ Time Frame: 0-9 weeks and 0-62 weeks ]
    Objective measure of executive function; range = 0-26; higher scores = better executive function
  • Change in State-Trait Anxiety Inventory (STAI) total score [ Time Frame: 0-9 weeks and 0-62 weeks ]
    Measure of anxiety; range of possible scores from 20-80; "no or low anxiety" (20-37), "moderate anxiety" (38-44), and "high anxiety" (45-80).

Descriptive Information
Brief Title  ICMJE Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction for Parkinson's Disease: A Longitudinal Study
Official Title  ICMJE Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction for Parkinson's Disease: A Longitudinal Study
Brief Summary To investigate the efficacy of Mindfulness-based Stress Reduction (MBSR),to improve HRQoL, cognition, and mood, as well as to determine the longevity of the treatment response in individuals with Parkinson's disease (PD).
Detailed Description Eligible study participants will be randomly assigned to one of two interventions: 1) Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction for Parkinson's disease; MBSR-PD or 2) Creative Education Care (CEC). Study visits may be held remotely, via online video format (Webex). Interventions are held within a group format consisting of approximately 6-10 individuals with PD. Groups will meet once per week for over a 9-week period. All participants will be administered a battery of neuropsychological tests to measure HRQoL, cognition (e.g., executive function, attention, memory), and mood (i.e., anxiety, depression, and apathy), as well as motor symptoms, disease severity, and mindfulness engagement/practice. Tests will be administered at baseline, 9 weeks (post-treatment), and 6- and 12-months (follow-up assessments) by an examiner blinded to group assignment.
