Missed Opportunities in Patient-Provider Communication About Breast Cancer Risk
There may be missed opportunities to enhance communication between patients and doctors about breast cancer screening and surveillance for higher risk patients. Recently published research (PDF), led by Natasha Buchanan Lunsford, PhD, tells us more.
The Bring Your Brave site is for health care providers too. A CME course is available to learn about factors that increase risk for breast cancer in young women and ways to communicate more effectively with young women at high risk.
Take a look at Bring Your Brave’s resources for women under age 45 to help them understand their risk of hereditary breast and ovarian cancer and take preventive measures to reduce their risk. Read or watch our spokeswomen’s stories about their experiences with breast cancer and hereditary breast and ovarian cancer risk.
