This paper reports data from selected components of a pilot study

designed to understand the long term psychosocial impact of lung

cancer. The purpose was to identify appraisal and coping patterns

related to successful adjustment as defined by psychological,

physical, and daily functioning indices. Qualitative data from 13

newly diagnosed lung cancer patients were subjected to content

analysis. Subjects were interviewed within one month of diagnosis

using the General Coping Behaviors (COPE) and Resolution Scale

(RES) of Weismann and Worden. Structured questions assessed

cognitive awareness, appraisals, blame and control over illness,

specific problems related to the diagnosis, and coping strategies.

A list of illness related problems and changes in life style and

habits was generated from the responses. Coping behaviors/

strategies related to the problems were identified. This

information will be used to guide and refine the initial interview

portion of the planned longitudinal study and to suggest possible

interventions.
