Enhancing the Experience of Endocrine Therapy Study

Research shows that although some women do take their endocrine therapy daily, others do not take it regularly, stop taking it, or decide to switch to another type of endocrine therapy. The primary goal of this study was pilot test short videos designed to promote adherence to endocrine therapy. The researchers wanted to enroll up to 500 volunteers and used the Love Research Army (LoveRA) as one of their recruitment sources. The Call to Action for this study was sent to LoveRA members on December 8, 2015. The researchers closed enrollment on March 28, 2016. Through the LoveRA, the research team identified 601 women who were interested in enrolling in the study. The research team published the study results in Breast Cancer Research and Treatment.

We combat the disparities that exist in research by challenging the scientific community to launch studies that are as inclusive and diverse as the people that breast cancer affects.
