The toolkit was envisioned and created by breast cancer survivors with your patients in mind. The questions your patients have, the choices they have to make, the worries they may face related to breast localization are all addressed in these resources.
The material is presented in various formats since patients and their families learn in different ways. By providing them with these resources prior to their appointment, they will feel more empowered about their care and come ready to ask questions and discuss concerns. This toolkit includes:
- A Patient Guide to Breast Localization: A list of commonly asked patient questions — answered.
- A Video: “Breast Localization Before Breast-Conserving Surgery” – You can also make this video yourself using the included script as a guide.
- Email and Text Templates: You can use the templates to craft appointment reminders or other communications with your patients (MS Word format).
- A Patient Resource Handout: A list of evidence-based resources that contain helpful information about breast localization, as well as other important topics related to breast cancer treatment.
