To screen or not to screen? Deciding when cancer screenings are a good idea has never been more complicated. Patients are flooded with conflicting information about the value of screening tests and have no easy way to figure out if and when a screening test is the right choice for them. This book changes that. Cancer Screening Decisions: A Patient-Centered Approach is a hands-on tool for clinicians to use with their patients as they weigh the advantages and disadvantages of cancer screenings. Taking a uniquely visual approach, the book walks through every step of the decision-making process for the four most common cancers: breast, colorectal, lung and prostate cancer. It's a vital resource for every clinician looking to personalize care and empower patients to make the best possible choices for their health. Inside this book, you'll find: -Simple, evidence-based infographics that make cancer screening data easy to understand. -Quick-reference tabs for easy navigation. -Desktop flip design for dual use between patient and clinician -Patient-side pages that distill complex, yet essential information into helpful visuals and graphics -Clinician-side pages that serve as practical guides for facilitating challenging conversations -A primer on shared decision making -An approachable resource ideal for both waiting rooms and patient rooms.
