  • Breast Cancer Female

Purpose:

Hormone responsive breast cancer is common and costly. Long-term adjuvant endocrine therapy (AET) improves breast cancer outcomes greatly, but, unfortunately, is commonly associated with physical and emotional concerns. I propose to evaluate the feasibility and preliminary effectiveness of a behavioral intervention to facilitate problem identification, provide education, coaching for breast cancer survivors with symptoms while on AET. Therefore, the intervention intends to empower women to engage in better self-care and seek out resources they need, which, in turn, will lead to better symptom management.


Criteria:

Inclusion Criteria: - Age ≥ 50. - Nonmetastatic bread cancer survivors reporting being bothered by 1 or more symptoms related to their treatment with AET (for > 0 months and < 6 months). - Possess a household or cell telephone. - Ability to provide informed consent. Exclusion Criteria: - Clinically significant cognitive impairment. - Communication barrier limiting ability to participate in telephone assessments.
