Young, Empowered & Strong: Web-Based Symptom Monitoring and Self-Management for Young Adult Breast Cancer Survivors (YES Study)
About the Study
The goal of this study is to measure whether a web-based patient-reported symptom monitoring and self management portal, Young, Empowered & Strong (YES), improves the quality of life of young breast cancer survivors when compared to standard of care symptom management.
Type of Study
This is a study with two separate treatment groups.
Participants are placed into one of two study groups by chance, and neither the participants nor the researchers choose the group into which the participants are placed.
- Group A participants will receive access to the Young, Empowered and Strong (YES) portal.
- Group B participants will not receive access to the YES portal.
What the Study Involves
Participants will be randomly placed into one of two groups. Participants in both groups will complete a total of 4 surveys over 9 months.
- Participants in Group A will receive access to the YES portal for 9 months, and will complete surveys at 0, 3, 6, and 9 months.
- Participants in Group B will receive standard treatment (no access to the YES portal) and will complete surveys at 0, 3, 6, and 9 months. After 9 months, participants in group B will be given access to the YES portal for 3 months.
