STEP: Breast Therapy Education Program
Lacassagne has set up a Therapeutic Education Program, called STEP, for patients treated for breast cancer.

Aimed at any patient treated at the Center, in the city or in another institution, this program aims to provide a better understanding of the disease, a better knowledge of the proposed treatments but also to provide information in respect of daily life: dietetics, physical activity, pain management, geriatric approach, psychological approach, notion of genetics … in order to increase acceptance and tolerance of treatment.

After an educational diagnosis, each patient is offered a program tailored to their needs in the form of group or individual workshops, led by a practitioner and a caregiver.
