PrefHer was an industry-funded, multi-centre study, examining patient preference between two methods of administering an important breast cancer drug.  This crossover study was conducted across 12 countries using pre- and post-treatment questionnaires to determine which method of administration patients prefer.  The study evaluated the experiences and satisfaction of health care professionals with the two methods, and explored the factors influencing patient preference.
