Study Review

The purpose of this study is to learn how a woman’s beliefs and values influence her decision to select a specific type of breast cancer surgery. The researchers will use what they learn to create a decision aid that doctors can use to talk with their patients about breast surgery options.

The initial Call to Action for this study was on 11/12/2019 and the researchers closed enrollment on 10/19/2020. The study enrolled 2,452 participants, many of whom were sourced through the Love Research Army.
