From Australia: New Online Breast Reconstruction Decision Aid

Some 20–30% of Australian women feel regret after deciding whether or not to have breast reconstruction. The same research showed the regret had a physiological impact on the women, according to the Breast Cancer Network Australia.

A new online tool has been developed to help guide already stressed women through the breast reconstruction decision-making process, in this media report.

The Breast Reconstruction Decision Aid, also known by the portmanteau BRECONDA, asks women a series of questions and provides information about the different surgical options available.

The Aid was created to help you decide, along with your surgeon, which option you prefer after mastectomy – whether or not to have a reconstruction, and if so, what type of reconstruction will best suit you.
