Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Interview Study of Breast Cancer Survivorship Programs Using Technology [ Time Frame: 1 day ]
    Breast cancer survivors and clinic staff surveys analyzed regarding acceptability of, and preferences for integration of patient navigation and an eHealth technology platform. Focus group and interview transcripts analyzed using ATLAS.ti qualitative analysis software. To analyze these data, constant comparative method used to conduct thematic analysis of transcribed data. As secondary check of breast cancer survivor data, calculation of descriptive statistics for measures administered to survivors following interview (frequencies, means, and standard deviations) including Patient Activation Measure and Systems Usability Scale.
