*weil das Glas immer halb voll ist
Ich habe über 25 Jahre Erfahrung in Pflege, Betreuung und Beratung – speziell auch im Bereich Brustkrebs.
Als Diplomierte Gesundheits- und Krankenschwester ist es mir ein wichtiges Anliegen diese Erfahrung mit Patientinnen, Betroffenen und Angehörigen zu teilen.

Breast cancer is the most common cancerous condition in women and it often endangers the affected person existentially in physical and psychosocial terms. It mostly occurs in women at an age at which responsibility in the family and/or job is needed more than ever. But with the diagnosis of breast cancer, women often feel they are left alone. They do not know enough about the disease and tend to react in panic. But only a person who is well-informed can decide with consideration. Not even the fact that in our century information is easily available over the internet helps much to decide what to do next after the diagnosis. Michael Slater, PhD, a professor of journalism and technical communication at Colorado State University and the co-author of a study about information and health in the WWW, discovered that only 35% of the information is based on scientific facts.
Breast cancer is an illness which is often compared to chronic diseases such as diabetes or asthma. This is not exactly appropriate. While diabetic or asthmatic patients do in fact feel ill without their medication, this is not the case with breast cancer patients. But prevision treatment (a treatment given to a healthy risk population, which is supposed to reduce the return of the illness) – in most cases – goes on over years, so we are talking about a chronic illness.
Breast cancer has for many years been the most frequent cancerous condition in Austria.
The incidence (frequency of the illness related to the number of inhabitants) was increasing steadily until 1997; since then the number of new patients has been stagnating on a high level, occurring in ~ 4500 people/year.
In 1998, 4540 women in Austria developed breast cancer; in 1980, there were 2600 women in this country, so there the increase has been 75% in less than 20 years. Compared on an international basis, there are extensive differences in the incidence of the illness and in the mortality rate (death rate) caused by the illness. In Vienna, ~ 14.000 people develop cancer annually, with 7000 new patients expected per year. In Vienna, breast cancer is the most frequent malignant new illness in women with 900 new cases every year.
The risk of developing breast cancer rises with increasing age, but the relative meaning in women is at its highest level in the mid-life period.
Recurrences/metastases occur up to 20 years after the disease in equal frequency (~3%/year), only then do they occur more rarely and we can talk about recovery.
The aim of a meeting with me should be to help the affected women practically when dealing with the illness and to pass on my knowledge and experiences with other breast cancer patients, which I collected during 20 years of work.
In my position as a nurse who looks after her patients, I am aware of the complaints and needs of women after the breast cancer illness in all their variety. Apart from that, my patients often tell me that they can talk to me, as a woman and their nurse, much more easily about their personal problems and needs. From wound management, therapy and exercise assistance to consultation and care. I wisit you at your home, please make an Appointment under:
