Welcome to the EMPOWER-SMS program

Empower SMS logo

The Lakeside Specialist Breast Clinic team is excited to offer a new health and wellness program for patients who have completed active treatment (surgery and/or chemotherapy and/or radiotherapy), to support you between your appointments.

EMPOWER-SMS is sent via 4 text messages per week for 6-months. Topics include managing side effects and endocrine therapy medication, getting active, healthy eating, mental health and suggestions about free services that may be helpful to you. EMPOWER-SMS has been tested in a clinical trial at the Westmead Breast Cancer Institute and a national research study, including over 1000 participants combined. Results showed that EMPOWER-SMS helped people to be consistent with taking their endocrine therapy medication compared to usual care (no text messages).
