Psychosocial aspects of breast reconstruction (this webinar is part of our breast reconstruction series)

11 Sept 2024, 7pm: Online webinar 

In this webinar, professor Diana Harcourt and professor Alex Clarke will consider the psychosocial aspects of breast reconstruction, including ways in which health professionals can support women through the decision-making period.

This includes the use of PEGASUS - an intervention designed to facilitate shared decision-making by eliciting each patient’s own expectations of what she wants to achieve, setting patient-centred goals. And aiding discussion of these expectations and goals with the surgical team.

They'll also consider the early post-operative period and women’s experiences of seeing the results of their surgery for the first time, and how they could be supported at this particular time.
