  1. MBSR = Mindfulness-based stress reduction. BEAT Cancer trial = Better Exercise Adherence after Treatment for Cancer trial. FSI = Fatigue Symptom Inventory
  2. SD = Standard deviation of the baseline scores. SEM = Standard error of measurement of the baseline scores
  3. “Better” refers to the group whose SF-36 Vitality scores increased by ≥ 1 SEM. “Same” refers to the group whose change in SF-36 Vitality scores was < 1 SEM. The best MID estimate was derived from triangulating three summary results (mean, median, and upper value of range excluding highest and lowest MID) and rounding to an integer value
