Resumo

HILL, K. An approach to the management of locally advanced breast cancer: Part 2. SAMJ, S. Afr. med. j. [online]. 2014, vol.104, n.5, pp. 384-384. ISSN 2078-5135.

Caring for a patient with locally advanced breast cancer requires a multidisciplinary approach, whether cure or palliation. Patient expectations need to be discussed, while alternative and holistic approaches help to reinforce the patient's belief that their decision regarding care is correct. It is important to recognise that a patient's decision to choose 'no treatment' should be treated with respect. Psychological support and care are vital, requiring a non-judgemental relationship built on trust.
