Maastro Embraces Breast Cancer patients’ perspective!

Together with Borstkankerverening Nederland, UMC Utrecht and The Netherlands Cancer Institute, Maastro organizes the EMBRACES (Employing Mass data to inform on Breast radiotherapy Choices in cases of Equipoise for shared decision making) workshop today and tomorrow to gain the patients’ perspective on how which breast cancer side effects should be mentioned and visualized in a decision aid. Obviously, COVID-19 guidelines will be adhered to.

The results of the workshop will be used for a grant application to extend the current BRASA patient decision aid with prediction models for side-effects, based on big data (PROMs). We hope to have a successful and fun workshop with chairman Maria Henneman and cartoonist Gertjan Kleijne from ComicHouse.
