One in eight women in the United States will develop breast cancer during her lifetime. During the year after diagnosis, women face from one to four or more crucial decisions regarding their treatment and recovery. Breast Cancer: Your Decision NotebookÂ® provides assistance to women facing these difficult decisions by giving women needed information, helping them think through their personal values and preferences and presenting ways to determine how they can come to a new ÂnormalÂ. The comprehensive CD-ROM covers topics such as staging, pathological reports, medical tests, reconstruction and breast cancer treatment choices of surgery, radiation, chemotherapy and hormonal therapy.
The Notebook enables women to participate in their treatment decisions by providing in-depth information through audio with text and graphic support. Women are encouraged to explore their treatment options from their personal point of view with the use of interactive tools and listening to personal stories from breast cancer survivors.
Breast Cancer: Your Decision NotebookÂ® was recognized as an outstanding contribution to the field of patient communications in 2004. The CD-ROM won a Bronze Award in the 2004 Health and Science Communications Association Media Festival.
