Background: Patients are living longer with recurrent breast cancer, but survivorship programs for these individuals are lacking.
Objectives: The aims were to implement a survivorship program for individuals with recurrent breast cancer, increase their quality of life (QOL), and evaluate patient satisfaction with the program.
Methods: Survivors were referred for a one-hour coaching intervention tailored to their needs based on results of the Functional Assessment of Cancer Therapy–Breast (FACT-B) survey. Satisfaction was assessed immediately and two weeks postintervention. A paired t test was used to evaluate QOL scores before and two weeks following participation.
Findings: Statistically significant (p = 0.000) improvements were observed overall and in each subscale of the FACT-B survey. Patient satisfaction was high immediately postintervention and remained high at the two-week assessment.
