Abstract or Summary
  • The purpose of this study is to use an integrated biocultural perspective to examine the decision-making processes of young survivors as they navigate breast cancer treatment and reproductive health care options. This retrospective study utilizes a mixed-methods approach that integrates quantitative survey data (Phase I) with interview (Phase II) and focus group (Phase III) narratives from the young survivor community. Grounded theory and biocultural approaches guide analysis and interpretations. Findings reveal how young women engage reproductive and treatment decision-making as biocultural beings, negotiating immediate mortality risks, institutional constraints, and long-term, quality of life concerns and reproductive health values. Recommendations include the integration of women's voices and biocultural approaches into the development of young survivor educational materials and cancer care counseling in an effort to establish a successful shared decision-making model as the clinical standard.
