NABCOP guide to the breast cancer pathway for older women

The NABCOP is committed to providing informative resources for (use with) older patients newly diagnosed with breast cancer. We have developed a 2-page guide to asking important questions along the breast cancer care pathway, in collaboration with our patient and charity representatives. This guide is of particular relevance to women aged 70 and over, with question prompts for patients to discuss key elements of their care and treatment with their wider breast care team, supported by their clinical nurse specialist.
