Breast cancer diagnoses are rising yearly in the United States; these diagnoses among the 18–45-year-old age group means that many employed women are affected. Previous breast cancer disclosure interventions identify challenges faced following the diagnosis, as well as common themes and aspects in the breast cancer disclosure process in the workplace, however few have approached the process holistically. A pre-existing study conducted by faculty researchers at the University of Texas at Arlington originally planned to examine how individuals with breast cancer perceived the feasibility and acceptability of a theory-driven eLearning intervention on disclosure at work. The focus of this study was to form qualitative data analyses through a phronetic iterative approach, first-level coding, and interpretation on the interviews conducted in the pre-existing intervention. The results showed participants finding relevant information in the intervention to be helpful in applying it to their current situation, regardless of whether they ultimately chose to disclose their diagnosis.
