Focus Groups: Development of Computer-Based Tools for Mid-life Breast Cancer Survivors

A series of three focus groups were conducted to explore the knowledge that menopausal and postmenopausal women have about menopause management and the strategies they use to manage menopause. They provide preliminary information as the initial phase of an ongoing project to develop a web-based resource for decision-making regarding menopause management by women with a history of breast cancer.
Sample
Purposive sampling for the three groups resulted in groups composed of women of different ages and different breast cancer histories
