Breast cancer affects over 25,000 women across Canada last year. For women who are considering surgery as a treatment or prevention option, surgical decision-making can be a difficult, complex and personal process. There is a need for state-of- the-art online educational content to assist in explaining the indications, risks and benefits, preoperative preparation, and post-operative outcomes for breast cancer surgery.
The goal of this project was to develop an online educational video for breast surgery decision-making. This short video incorporates illustrations and animations, and depicts different surgical options including nipple-sparing mastectomy (NSM) and skin-sparing mastectomy (SSM) with reconstruction.
