Abstract Women with metastatic breast cancer desire interventions that would allow them to self‐manage symptoms, but which do not require additional clinic appointments. We used a community based participatory research approach to develop a tablet based supportive care intervention called Nurse AMIE to address this need. The intervention modules are drawn from published evidence based clinical guidelines from ASCO and NCCN, including physical activity, soothing music, mindfulness meditation, guided imagery, cognitive behavioral therapy, and psychoeducation. Preliminary results include 61% and 55% acceptability from clinicians and patients, respectively, as well as 86% feasibility, defined as using the tablet for at least 30 of the 90‐day intervention. These preliminary results warrant additional research, particularly given the potential for this intervention to address needs of rural and medically underserved patients.
