Breast Cancer M.A.P Index 10/10/2011
- New data collected from more than 1,000 breast cancer survivors finds that many experience significant social and emotional issues not adequately addressed by the current standard of care. The research indicates high levels of distress among breast cancer survivors and minimal awareness of tools and programs designed to improve communication between patients and physicians when weighing a patient’s treatment options. Survey participants also reported that plans intended to improve coordination between multiple care teams were rarely implemented. These findings are outlined in an inaugural Breast Cancer M.A.P. Index, released today by the Cancer Support Community (CSC), a non-profit organization dedicated to ensuring that social and emotional support are critical, integrated components of complete cancer care, through original peer-reviewed research, personalized support and education services.
