This book portrays the personal experience of breast cancer through the stories of three women and their partners. The combination of emotional and factual information on the disease, treatment options, and health promotion strategies makes this important reading for health professionals and their patients. It is derived from a major NYU nursing study of 121 couples. Each chapter is followed by study questions and a knowledge review, which can be used in patient education. An overview of the NYU study is given as well as a list of relevant Internet sites. A companion video series is also available.
