What’s new in My Journey?
Unsurprisingly, over the last few months, our core content focus has been around COVID-19 and equipping members with information beyond general content about COVID-19. We have developed content specific to diagnosis type, information on treatment as well as tips on using telehealth effectively and pieces exploring the psychological impact of COVID-19.
You can access all COVID-19 related content via our content hub.
In addition, we’ve produced a new article about seromas following breast cancer surgery, including advice on the management of seromas. If this is a topic relevant to your patient, you can direct them to it by clicking here.
We’ve also developed content on cording, or axillary web syndrome, and its management. You can view it here.
What content are people reading?
Data suggests that popular topics on My Journey include treatment and side effects, the facts about breast cancer, questions for you to ask your treating team and information on nutrition and exercise.
What people are saying
I found the information to be really fantastic. I found it a source of information that I could trust. Not knowing anything about cancer or about cancer treatment it was really good to be able to have a trusted source that I could read in my own time and digest information in my own pace. I looked at a few websites but having a source of information that was just about breast cancer and that was clearly able to look at different phrases in terms of diagnosis and treatment, I found to be extremely helpful. – My Journey user
I go [to My Journey] to see if what I am experiencing is normal before I alert the doctor or something like that, because if it is normal, I am not going to waste my doctor’s time ... So, it covers accurately what the treatment will be like for you and things, in friendly terms where you feel like you are normal. So, I have used it to validate what I have been going through. – My Journey user
