Decision-making in ABC

This webinar looks at decision making when you have advanced breast cancer (ABC), and how you can come to a decision that's best for you and your family.

There are many decisions to make when you have advanced breast cancer. Deciding whether to start a new treatment, continue an existing treatment or stop treatment all together can be a difficult process - not to mention the family and personal considerations, financial aspects and quality of life goals that play a role.

In this webinar, our expert panel discussed how to navigate the decision-making process to make the best choices for you and your family.
