Quality of Care NL and Choosing Wisely NL are partnering with the Cancer Care Program to help guide conversations between patients and health care providers about the best course of care for female patients diagnosed with stage 4 metastatic breast cancer.

For patients with this diagnosis, certain screening tests may cause more harm than good. Oncologists in the Cancer Care Program, as well as other clinicians within the circle of care, can share this resource with their patients when discussing what treatment options are best.

Reviewing this resource (see link in right side menu) will help ensure clinicians are aware of how ongoing care is being managed for these patients.
