Advanced, or incurable, breast cancer, causes distress, impairs quality of life (QOL), and has a high health-system burden, yet few studies have examined interventions to address this.

Our research group developed an online psychological program for people with curable cancer that reduced health-care utilisation and improved QOL.

The proposed study will trial an online program for women with advanced breast cancer, to improve well-being (distress and QOL), and reduce health-care utilisation.
