Early-stage breast cancer patients lack knowledge; may not receive treatment they prefer
Date:1/10/2012

ey included 10 multiple-choice questions regarding breast cancer knowledge, including treatment options, local recurrence, survival and side effects six items that were rated on a scale from 0 (not at all important) to 10 (extremely important) in the goals and concerns category and an additional seven multiple-choice items about the content of discussions with providers and how involved the patient was in the decision-making process. The decision about the type of surgical procedure for early-stage breast cancer is considered a "preference-sensitive" decision. Patients in this study were clinically eligible for either option, and an international consensus process has defined the quality of decision-making as the degree to which a decision is informed and concordant with patient preferences.iv v vi
