Patient Advocacy

Advance care planning is the process of planning for future medical treatment in the event that patients are unable to make their own decisions. It ensures that patients receive healthcare services that are consistent with their personal wishes, culture, goals, and values.

Advocacy usually begins with personal crisis and the need for support, but it eventually moves on to sharing experiences and information with others, speaking out in public forums, and working to influence change, suggested Musa Mayer, breast cancer survivor and advocate, at the recent ESMO International Consensus Conference for Advanced Breast Cancer in Lisbon, Portugal.
