Some women with metastatic breast cancer wish they had more time to talk to their healthcare providers about their needs.
In 2014, we commissioned the Make Your Dialogue Count survey to better understand how we can help you work with your healthcare team and loved ones to improve talks with your healthcare provider.
The focus of your visits with your healthcare provider may change over time – from your diagnosis, to treatment switches or to managing treatment side effects. No matter what the focus, it is important to be honest and to speak up about your needs.
We used results from the 2014 Make Your Dialogue Count survey to create a personalized discussion guide to help you make the most of your time with your healthcare providers (eg physician, oncologist, nurse, psychologist).
This information can help you prepare for your healthcare provider visits. We encourage you to come back and get a new discussion guide when you feel your emotions, concerns or priorities change.
