We are pleased to announce that we have completed recruitment for the What Matters Most study. Follow-up data collection is ongoing and will finish in May 2019. We are also still interviewing trial participants as well as clinicians and other stakeholders at each of our sites.
We recruited 622 women from September 2017 through February 2019. A total of 162 women have been discontinued, a number that includes many women who were deemed ineligible after recruitment.
Meeting our recruitment goal would not have been possible without the women who agreed to participate and the research teams who supported their involvement. Thank you. We are also especially grateful to our patient associates (breast cancer survivors) who helped us recruit, and our patient partners who contributed substantially to the design and implementation of the recruitment process in our monthly study team meetings.
We look forward to sharing our study results as they become available. These results will help us understand how best to help women with low incomes or little education make high-quality breast cancer treatment decisions.
