Purpose: The purpose of this paper is to discuss the differences in QOL and symptom distress and management of older and younger women with breast cancer, who were assigned to either 1) a 6-week telephone interpersonal counseling intervention (TIP-C), 2) a 6-week exercise intervention (SEP), or 3) a 6 week attentional usual care control intervention (UC). Rationale: Fifty-seven percent of all new malignancies and 71% of all cancer deaths occur in patients over age 65 years. Yet, breast cancer treatment with elders has been poorly studied. Method: This study used a repeated measures experimental design, with women matched by stage and treatment. The male partners were assigned to the same intervention as the women. Measurement occurred at baseline (T1), at the end of the 6 week intervention (T2) and one month after T2. The sample consists of about 15 women over age 65 years and 71 women under age 65. Most were white, married, college educated and employed. The majority of women were Stage II and had received a combination of chemotherapy, radiation and hormone blocking therapies. Results: For this analysis, we divided women into younger (<64 years) and older (>64 years). Individual regression analysis was used to capture the rate and direction of change for each subject in a single variable, the slope. The slopes were used to examine differences between groups. Results will be presented at the conference. Implications: These findings provide support that the TIP-C intervention was effective in symptom management and improving QOL for both older and younger women with breast cancer. In fact, using the telephone as a method of delivery removed many access barriers; many of whom had greater difficulties with transportation.
