About the Study

The goal of this study is to improve a tool that helps cancer patients navigate work-related issues. Researchers are testing an early version of a mobile app designed to help breast cancer patients keep their jobs. The app – called TEAMWork (Talking to Employers And Medical staff about Work) – provides advice for patients who need to talk to their employers about treatment or their medical team about work. Researchers want patient feedback on what aspects of the app work well and what can be better.
