Melanoma Stages and Treatment – Patient Guide
We are currently updating our Patient Decision Aid, which will soon become The Melanoma Stages and Treatment – Patient Guide. We would welcome feedback from patients at all stages of diagnosis.
The Melanoma Patient Decision Aid reflects the latest advances in melanoma medicine such as staging, surgical procedures, adjuvant therapy and updates on treatments.
With the increasing number of treatment choices, many patients struggle to understand all the options available to them. Aided by a panel of clinicians, nurses and patient representatives, Melanoma Focus has produced a melanoma patient decision aid (PDA) to help patients navigate the melanoma care pathway. As well as providing key information on the available treatment choices, the tool is intended to improve communication between patients and their healthcare professionals, helping them participate more effectively in the decision-making processes.
The PDA may be found at https://pda.melanomafocus.com
