We will do this through lowering patients’ anxiety, decreasing decision conflict, improving patient knowledge and, thereby, influencing the shared decision about the timing of ADT initiation.
Ductal Carcinoma in Situ (DCIS) is not life-threatening, but some cases do progress to invasive cancer over time. To help women diagnosed with DCIS decide how best to treat it, the Foundation has developed a Shared Decision-Making® program called Ductal Carcinoma in Situ: Choosing Your Treatment.
