Feasibility of a telehealth educational program on self-management of pain and fatigue in adult cancer patients.
The primary objective was to assess the feasibility of a telehealth pain and fatigue self-management program among adult cancer patients. The program did not meet feasibility requirements because of only 34% of eligible patients choosing to participate. However, 50 percent of patients starting the program graduated. Differences in baseline characteristics and retention rates were noted by recruitment strategy.
