Editorial Reviews


It is very fashionable and politically correct to talk about informed choice and shared decision making when it comes to doctor/patient relationships. However in practice most clinicians only pay lip service to this deal. Anna Maslin's book 'sharing the decisions' sets the record straight and describes the theory and practice of the true integration of the patients values and priorities into making medical decisions that can have the greatest impact on the length and quality of life of the individual. Professor Michael Baum, Royal Free and University College Medical School, University College London

Format: Paperback
Breast Cancer Sharing the Decision is a brilliant book. It is aimed at professional healthcare workers in breast cancer care but it is great for women and their families who are looking for more information or want to participate in treatment decisions. It is a good mix of the academic, personal views from women with breast cancer and special sections including Breast Cancer screening, genetics, chemoprevention, psychological care and treatments. I would strongly reccomend it to anyone who is serious about thinking through these issues.
