Taxanes, a type of chemotherapeutic agent prescribed to breast cancer patients, have a known physical side effect of chemotherapy induced peripheral neuropathy (CIPN). The purpose of this qualitative study is to understand the experience and physical functional side effects of taxanes. This is the first of a two phase study. The overall goal is to identify existing objective physical performance measures to assess functional side effects of taxanes.
