Attention and Interpretation Modification (AIM) for Fear of Breast Cancer Recurrence: An Intervention Development Study

Research study, clinical trial, writer/journalist request,focus group,etc

Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center (MSKCC) is currently offering a study for survivors of breast cancer who are experiencing anxiety about the possibility of cancer recurrence.

Eligible participants include women who are more than 1 year out from active treatment for DCIS or stage I or II breast cancer with no history of recurrence or metastasis. To participate, you must have access to a telephone, a computer and the Internet, and you will need to come in to MSKCC in New York City, New York for one visit. 

This study will test a computer program designed to reduce fear of cancer recurrence among breast cancer survivors through 8 30-minute sessions completed over 4 weeks. While the first session will be completed with a staff member at MSKCC, the rest of the sessions can be completed in your own home. You will be asked to fill out questionnaires before, after, and 3 months following the intervention. This program is free of charge, and you will be offered a total of $25 over the study for your time. You may be asked to provide saliva samples before and after completing the program, but this is not required to participate.
