iPrevent – Development and pilot testing of an evidence-based, tailored, computerised risk assessment and decision tool for women at increased risk of breast cancer to facilitate discussion about prevention and screening measures.

While many factors influence breast cancer risk, family history, mammographic density and a personal history of certain types of breast disease are the most important. There is evidence that a tailored decision aid will help educate women, and their clinicians, on their personal risks and the relative pros and cons of each of the available measures to reduce that risk. This research will assess the needs of potential end users and then program and pilot a prototype decision aid tool, with a plan to subsequently assess the tool in a randomised controlled trial.
