SESSION TYPE: Original Investigation Poster

PURPOSE: Psychosocial distress during stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT) of lung tumors is poorly assessed. Since 2012, patients receiving SBRT in our clinic have been prospectively surveyed for common causes of distress. SBRT is a high dose per fraction regimen commonly utilized to treat smaller lung tumors either curatively or palliatively. Our patient reported distress (PRD) results expose common concerns of patients undergoing SBRT to the lung and reveal patterns within categories of distresses. Identification of stressors will allow physicians to treat patients with a holistic approach and provide patients with adequate resources during radiation therapy.
