Language guides to support those with Advanced and Metastatic Breast Cancer

Date posted: April 12, 2019

What would you say to a friend or patient with advanced or metastatic breast cancer? Do you know what that is and what it means for the person with that diagnosis? In March this year two language guides were published by Novartis which provide practical tips and recommendations about how to talk to patients with either advanced or metastatic breast cancer and/or their relatives.

The two guides represent the outcome of two rounds of consultation with the Patient Community (Breast Cancer patients – various stages) and Breast Cancer Experts (Oncologists, Nurses, Psycho-oncologist), and are meant to facilitate a difficult dialogue around a topic that’s too often a “taboo”.
