BREAST CANCER PROMs TOOL
Online tool to improve the quality of life of women with breast cancer taking adjuvant endocrine therapy.
A prototype for this tool was developed during a master thesis in 2017.
The goal is to improve the quality of life of women with breast cancer taking adjuvant endocrine therapy. The focus lies on self-management and communication. This includes learning to cope, having a different perspective on symptoms, motivating behavior change and making sensitive subjects discussible. To capture these data, Patient-Reported Outcome Measures (PROMs) were used to capture a person’s perception of their own health through questionnaires.
The tool was positively received by patients during a pilot study. With the pilot feedback, the e-learning and daily scenario’s have been adapted. The improved tool is currently being tested in an RCT (Randomized Clinical Trial, 2021).
