Translational Research Program
The RESTART Study is a pilot study to examine possible ways to reduce stress and anxiety for women who recently completed the first round of treatment for ovarian cancer. We are interested in learning if changing the heart rate rhythm will help a cancer patient think more positively. We hope to learn if this leads to a reduction in the levels of stress and anxiety that are experienced during the period following cancer treatment. The study uses a smartphone based heart rate device.
The intervention includes techniques to help control emotions, relax, and reduce anxiety. This intervention, called the Heart Math Intervention, provides feedback through a take-home monitor that connects to a smartphone or iPhone. At the conclusion of the study the participant will keep the device to continue to use the techniques she learned during study participation.
