National Breast and Ovarian Cancer Centre (NBOCC) has now released the eagerly anticipated revised version of its Guide for women with early breast cancer. The comprehensive, 200 page resource provides information to support women with early breast cancer* in making decisions about their treatment and care, as well as advice for family and friends. The Guide walks women through every step of their breast cancer journey and is broken down into five key areas: Breast cancer: the facts, Making sense of test results, Treatment, When treatment is over, and Finding support.
“This resource compiles all the information a woman with early breast cancer will need in order to understand her diagnosis, treatment and follow-up care,” said Dr Helen Zorbas, CEO, National Breast and Ovarian Cancer Centre.
Based on NBOCC‘s Clinical practice guidelines for the management of early breast cancer, the consumer guide incorporates the latest evidence in a new, user-friendly, spiral bound format. First released in 2003, the Guide is one of NBOCC’s flagship resources, provided free of charge to women at diagnosis to assist their understanding and decision-making. It has been in consistently high demand with over 110,000 copies disseminated since its first release.
“The Guide provides women with reliable, up-to-date and easy to understand information in a compact booklet that they can take with them as they go through their treatment,” said Dr Zorbas.
