We are always seeking ways to provide additional resources for our patients. Queensland Health through Clinical Excellence Queensland has released a video series to help educate patients about breast reconstruction.

The aim of this series is to educate, inform and empower those who have been diagnosed with breast cancer so they can better understand the options that may be available to them.

Some of the topics of the videos in this series include:

• The suitability and eligibility for breast reconstruction
• Seeking a second opinion
• Your responsibility as a patient
• Reconstruction timeline
• Choosing not to have a reconstruction
• Self-care
• Breast Prosthetics
• Patient Stories

The Breast Reconstruction Patient Education series has been developed in partnership with consumers and health professionals including doctors, nurses, psychologists and physiotherapists.

The information contained in this educational series is not intended to replace clinical consultation with qualified professionals and is for general information only.
