ABSTRACT

In this special supplement to the Journal of the Advanced Practitioner in Oncology, or JADPRO, we review the treatment and management of patients with HER2-positive breast cancer and discuss a treatment model in which the physician and nurse practitioner work together to efficiently care for the patient. To add depth and perspective, we have included comments and discussion from people involved in different parts of the breast cancer experience: Angela DeMichele, MD, a breast cancer specialist at the Abramson Cancer Center of the University of Pennsylvania; Jennie Greco Lattimer, NP, who has worked closely with Dr. DeMichele for 15 years; and Rachel F., a patient who was diagnosed with metastatic HER2-
positive breast cancer at age 38 in July 2015. To view video interviews with the three participants and gain additional perspectives, access a special enhanced digital version of this supplement at advancedpractitioner.com/narratives/her2.
