Abstract
Methods Two hundred patients with renal cell carcinoma were randomly assigned to either an expressive writing group (EW) or a neutral writing group (NW) and asked to write on four separate occasions over 10 days for a maximum of 20 minutes at each writing session. Patients completed the MD Anderson Symptom Inventory (MDASI), Brief Fatigue Inventory, SF-36, IES, CES-D, and PSQI at baseline and then again 1 and 10 months after the writing sessions.
