  • Evidence-based treatment support programs that assist breast cancer patients in initiating and completing physician recommended treatment (e.g., patient navigation, financial assistance, legal assistance).
  • Evidence-based survivorship support programs that improve breast cancer survivors’ quality of life (e.g., support groups).
