Dear Members - 

I've been asked to participate in a Quaility of Life/Quality of Care
longitudinal study at the hopsital I work for (VA East Orange, NJ).  I will
be working with cancer patients who struggle with sadness, nervousness,
irritability, and worry.  I am in need of a tool to measure the pre and post
GIM changes in these mood states.  I also am interested in finding out if
there is a study that investigated the relationship between patients with
cancer who participate in GIM in combination with an antidepressant
medication and those who use GIM alone.

Unfortunately, I have very little time to establish a protocol, so any
information I gather regarding the measurement tool needs to come quickly.

Any help anyone can give me to point me in the right direction would be
greatly appreciated.  Thanks in advance.
