The aim of the study is to evaluate the results of online group meetings for breast cancer patients in the active phase of treatment.

The group therapy sessions took place synchronously online, on the Zoom platform, with a weekly frequency, 12 meetings lasting about 2.5 hours per session, between December 2021 and February 2022.

We analyzed the topics of discussion chosen by the participants, the structure of the group, the results obtained at the main scales of evaluation / monitoring of quality of life and the motivation of patients to participate in the therapeutic group.

All patients were in the active phase of treatment (chemotherapy, radiation therapy, hormone therapy, etc.).

The main goal of the group therapy was to reduce the stress related to the disease.
