Feasibility of a Supportive Education Program for Latina Breast Cancer Survivors

PRIMARY OBJECTIVES: I. Describe the feasibility of implementing the BBCEI. II. Describe the
cultural and linguistic appropriateness of the BBCEI. III. Determine topics requiring
further emphasis in the BBCEI. IV. Identify ways to enhance program content, format, and
materials. OUTLINE: Participants undergo 2 tailored BBCEI sessions within 1 month. At the
beginning of the first session the research nurse will present the participants with a list
of common physical and social concerns. The participant will then be asked to identify 3
topics that she wants to discuss. The research nurse will discuss with the participant any
relevant supportive care resources and make the appropriate referrals. At the second session
the focus of the BBCEI will be on psychological and spiritual well-being.

The population will consist of Latinas with breast cancer who have completed primary
cancer treatment. A total of 10 subjects will be accrued.
