MetadataShow full item record
Key Points • Aim was to test a single-session, telephone delivered intervention to reduce FCR in breast cancer patients. • 16 female breast cancer patients received the 30-minute, Mini-Adjustment to the Fear, Threat and Expectation of Recurrence (Mini-AFTERc) intervention. • Intervention implementation was feasible with cancer nurse specialists and fidelity was high. • Participants showed a significant decrease in recurrence fears at follow-up (effect size = 0.8; P = 0.03). • Preliminary results suggest the Mini-AFTERc is effective in reducing recurrence fears in breast cancer survivors.
