Breast cancer remains the world’s leading cause of cancer deaths among women.1 It is also one of the diseases women fear most, often creating intense fear in those who receive a breast cancer diagnosis, as well anxiety among those who dread the thought that they might one day feel a lump in their own breast or get that call after a mammogram.
The results are clear

• a demonstrably better patient experience
• increased revenue, largely as a result of higher patient numbers
This paper examines how Emily Sedgwick achieved these impressive results, and offers insights on how others working in comparable treatment pathways, can deploy similar techniques.
