Abstracts
Breast cancer is the most common cancer aff ecting women worldwide. It represents a huge burden not only for individuals but also for their families and their societies. Early diagnosis and multidisciplinary approach to the treatment increases the survival rate. However, treatment can be intensive and may result in comorbid conditions which decrease the quality of life. Rehabilitation medicine and palliative care have a huge role regarding the impact of breast cancer and its’
treatment on patient’s quality of life. Studies have shown a correlation between the quality of life and survival rates. This results in the necessity to include rehabilitation medicine and palliative care in the complex treatment of breast cancer patients from the beginning of the disease to the end of life.
