Communicating the External Beam Radiotherapy Experience (CEBRE)
The Bucksbaum Institute for Clinical Excellence and the Radiation Oncology Institute funded development of novel education materials for patients receiving radiotherapy. The Communicating the External Beam Radiotherapy Experience (CEBRE) discussion guides are designed as graphic narrative tools to facilitate communication with patients during the initial consultation or prior to radiotherapy simulation. There are seven versions of the CEBRE discussion guide including a General version that can be used for all disease sites and Lung, Breast, Prostate, Head/Neck, CNS, and GI versions for each of those disease sites, respectively.
