Communicating the External Beam Radiotherapy Experience (CEBRE) en Español
The Bucksbaum Institute for Clinical Excellence at the University of Chicago and the Radiation Oncology Institute are funding development of novel education materials for patients receiving radiation treatment. The Communicating the External Beam Radiotherapy Experience (CEBRE) en Español discussion guides are designed as graphic narrative tools to facilitate patient-physician communication during the initial consultation prior to radiotherapy. There are four versions of the CEBRE en Español discussion guides including a General version that can be used for all disease sites and Lung, Breast, and Prostate versions for each of those disease sites. Work is ongoing to develop Head/Neck, CNS, and GI guides during 2022.
