The Couplelinks study is a program for individuals with breast cancer who are looking for support as a couple. It’s a couples intervention – offered by internet with a telephone coaching component – designed to strengthen the relational bond and the couples sense of ‘we-ness’ in facing breast cancer together.
There has been great feedback from couples who have participated – in particular, husbands have appreciated the opportunity to think and talk about their experience as a partner, especially as no one had asked before.
The age criteria has been expanded – all women 50 years or younger diagnosed with breast cancer, in a committed relationship and having access to a computer, are eligible.
