Breast cancer patients face complex decisions about their treatment. Sarah Hawley, Reshma Jagsi, and colleagues developed an interactive online tool to help patients understand their treatment options. In a study published in the Journal of Clinical Oncology, they found that patients using the interactive tool had higher knowledge and felt more informed about options and felt better prepared to make a treatment choice.

The goal of this proposal is the development of “bottom-up” measures of daily experience, combining elements of time sampling with detailed episodic reinstantiation of events. Future use of the measures includes research into well-being and age-related changes in activities and experiences. I will (1) design methodological studies for the development and validation of these measures (Event Reconstruction Method, Day Reconstruction Method, and future variants); (2) develop the question program for pilot studies using the measures; (3) supervise the implementation of the pilot studies in form of web-based self-administered questionnaires; (4) participate in meetings in Princeton; and (5) present and publish relevant results.
