Breast cancer is the most common cancer in women in the United States, with an estimated 235,030 new cases were diagnosed in 2014. Although incidence has been rising, mortality is declining thanks to earlier detection and treatment advances. Care is becoming more personalized, with treatment options tailored to the individual patient. This course supports direct-care nurses by providing insight to evidence-based care for patients with breast cancer. The presenters describe the steps involved in developing a treatment plan for a breast cancer patient, explain genetic considerations based on a patient’s genetic makeup and discuss related nursing implications.
