Patient Centered Breast Cancer Care Using Technology

Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation 4th annual patient navigation conference will be held at June 23, 2020. Our collaboration nurse Nancy Hacker, BSN, RN, OCN, CBCN, from Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, will give a talk with topic “Patient-Centered Care & Technology Continues To Amaze Us!”
Patient-centered care is the practice of caring for patients (and their families) in ways that are meaningful and valuable to the individual patient.  It includes listening to, informing and involving patients in their care.

The IOM (Institute of Medicine) defines patient-centered care as: “Providing care that is respectful of, and responsive to, individual patient preferences, needs and values, and ensuring that patient values guide all clinical decisions.” (1)

Cancer care is complicated and highly situational. It requires a whole team (Medical Oncologist, Radiation Oncologist, Surgical Oncologist, nurse, patient navigator, therapist, dietitian, physiatrist, etc ) to coordinate with each other, work together in order to produce the best outcome.
However, there are many challenges, such as communication and patient compliance. Liyfe Clinic serves as the hub of each parties, facilitate the communication and patient education, the mission is to provide patient centered breast cancer care and produce the best outcome for each individual patient and patient family.
