SHARES Trial Summary

This trial studies whether two different interventions can improve patient outcomes when making decisions about breast cancer treatment.

Who is the study for?
This trial is for English or Spanish-speaking women aged 21-84 with stage 0-III breast cancer, planning surgery within 5 weeks of joining. Participating surgeons and their teams must consent to use a clinician dashboard. Practices treating over 100 new breast cancer patients annually can join. Excluded are those with impaired decision-making, visual impairment, or enrolled in Alliance A231701CD.Check my eligibility
What is being tested?
The study tests two interventions: an enhanced iCanDecide tool aiding in managing worry during treatment decisions versus the existing version; and a clinician dashboard that tracks patient concerns post-website visit to improve communication and decision making.See study design
What are the potential side effects?
Since this trial focuses on communication tools rather than medical treatments, traditional physical side effects aren't expected. However, participants may experience emotional or psychological responses when engaging with the intervention materials.
