Upon completion of this session participants should know the following:
  • Understand the differences in the philosophic management of Stage IV breast cancer versus Stages 0-3 breast cancer
  • Learn at least 3 ways healthcare providers can improve to make the treatment experience and end of life outcome easier for patients and families to endure
  • Recognize the value of incorporating humor as a form of complementary medicine along with traditional treatment
  • Understand the expectations patients have of treatment
