Description

Objective To examine the feasibility and format of the Promoting Resilience in Stress Management (PRISM) intervention among two groups of adolescents and young adults (AYAs) at-risk for poor outcomes: those with Type 1 diabetes (T1D) or cancer. Methods PRISM consists of two long or four short skills-based modules. English-speaking patients 12–25 years old were eligible if they had T1D for >6 months or cancer for >2 weeks. Feasibility was defined as an 80% completion rate and high satisfaction. Ongoing monitoring shaped iterative refinement of disease-specific approach. Results 12 of 15 patients with T1D (80%) completed the two-session intervention. 3 of 15 patients with cancer declined to complete the two-session version, citing prohibitive length of individual sessions. 12 (80%) completed the four-session version. Patient-reported satisfaction was high across groups. Conclusions The PRISM intervention is feasible and well-accepted by AYAs with cancer or T1D. Differences in patient populations warrant differences in approach.
