Course Details

Overview

The number of new breast cancer cases is relatively stable (breast cancer represents 15% of all new cancer cases diagnosed in the United States each year), but improvements in cancer detection and treatment have led to declining death rates. Almost 90% of patients are living with and beyond a breast cancer diagnosis.

After a breast cancer diagnosis, patients must navigate a host of difficult treatment decisions, debilitating physical and psychological symptoms, and treatment side effects. Patients now find themselves living with long-term treatment effects for which they may have received little education to manage. Primary care providers also may lack formal education of cancer treatment’s side effects.

This article will help inform nurses about long-term effects of breast cancer treatment so that they can educate and work with patients to manage negative effects that may occur from cancer treatment.

  • Describe reasons for long-term treatment effects of breast cancer therapy.
