Impact of Medical Qigong on quality of life, fatigue, mood and inflammation in cancer patients
Studie über den Einfluss von Medizinischem Qigong auf die Lebensqualität und Symptome von Krebspatienten
Substantial numbers of cancer patients use complementary medicine therapies, even without a supportive evidence base. This study aimed to evaluate in a randomized controlled trial, the use of Medical Qigong (MQ) compared with usual care to improve the quality of life (QOL) of cancer patients.
Our major findings were that scores on total QOL and all domains (PWB, SWB/family well-being, EWB and FWB) measured by the FACT-G were significantly improved in participants who completed the Qigong intervention at 10-week follow-up compared with the usual care control group.
