My Cancer Diagnosis Explained
– now available
The My Cancer Diagnosis Explained (MCDE) summary is a resource that you can use to provide patients and their carers, individualised written information at the time a patient is first told of their cancer diagnosis.
The MCDE summary supports the ‘diagnosis and next steps’ conversation with patients by:
helping clinicians to deliver specific information about the cancer diagnosis
enabling effective communication that meets each patient’s needs
linking the patient to information and services that can help them
ensuring the patient is informed and can therefore be actively engaged in decisions about their health
providing the patient with take-home information they can refer to and reflect on after the consultation.
