Breast Cancer Clinical Trial
Assessing Functional Status Needs Via PRO Measures for Pts With Metastatic Breast Cancer
The purpose of this single-site non-randomized study is to identify areas of need related to functional status and overall health, including nutrition and mental health in subjects with metastatic breast cancer (MBC). A decline in functional status is observed after breast cancer diagnosis and exacerbated by treatment. Declining functional status impacts the quality of life and can lead to increased comorbidity burden, hospitalization, and increased mortality. Functional status is assessed by specific provider-graded scales. Patient Reported Outcome (PRO) measures may better assess certain aspects of patient health and symptom domains. Thus, potentially supporting the future implementation of effective prehabilitation strategies. This study explores whether a PRO-based survey will identify the physical and emotional health and the social and financial status of patients newly diagnosed with MBC.
