breast cancer patients taking endocrine therapy
Breast cancer patients, currently taking adjuvant endocrine therapy will be equipped with a GlowCap device for a period of 30 days. The GlowCap will become part of their medication taking routine.
Other: GlowCap device
Participants will be provided with a device called the GlowCap for a period of 30 days. The device has visual and auditory cues to help patients remember to take their medication at the same time each day. The GlowCap will be programmed to glow when it is time for each patient to take her medication. The GlowCap will initially glow bright orange for the first hour from the time the patient is scheduled to take the medication. During the second hour, the GlowCap system will play music in addition to continuing to glow. If after 2 hours the patient still has not opened the medication bottle, she will receive a phone call reminding her to take her medication.
- Assess the usability of the GlowCap system by patients [ Time Frame: 2 years ]>60 years of age with early stage breast cancer.
- Measure the acceptance and satisfaction of the GlowCap reminder system [ Time Frame: 2 years ]with respect to medication adherence in patients >60 years with early stage breast cancer taking adjuvant endocrine therapy.
