The MATCH Study: Now Recruiting!

CKN is pleased to have partnered with Dr. Linda Carlson and her research team at the University of Calgary and the Princess Margaret Cancer Centre, in a ground-breaking new study measuring the effects of Mindfulness Meditation and Tai Chi/Qigong on quality of life for cancer survivors.

The MATCH Study is being offered both in Calgary and Toronto over the next 3 years and is now recruiting cancer survivors!

When treatment is over, many cancer survivors wonder what they can do to feel better physically, and to cope well with their “new normal.” The good news is that over 50% of all cancer survivors in Canada will live at least 5 years beyond diagnosis. Yet because most health-care systems must focus on getting patients through treatment, few programs offer help to transition back to communities, or ongoing programs designed specifically to improve survivors’ quality of life.

The MATCH study is a resource specifically designed for survivors that may help to address some of these common survivorship difficulties. Read how the Match Study can help in our latest blog.
