This study will provide a novel model for self-managing chronic illness symptoms that impact patient body image, couples’ relationships, intimacy, and QOL. It addresses the NINR’s goal to develop and test new strategies for symptom self-management to help patients and caregivers better manage their illness and improve QOL; and responds to calls for programs from the IOM and ACS to address treatment-related effects and improve survivors’ QOL.
