Project

CHU de Québec

Implement a support program for women affected by metastatic breast cancer to meet the specific and special needs of this clientele.

Description

There are resources available to provide ongoing care to women who are newly diagnosed with breast cancer, to those undergoing treatment, and to those who are terminally ill. However there is a lack of resources for women diagnosed with metastasis who have to live with the disease for many years to come.

The purpose of this project is to elaborate and deploy a support program for women diagnosed with metastatic breast cancer, based on the characteristics of the disease.
