The final topic of the consensus session was about exercise and diet. First, the panellists were asked whether they think patients with breast cancer should be recommended to avoid weight gain. Not surprisingly, the vast majority of the panellists (83%) agreed that patients should avoid weight gain. Almost exactly the same proportion of the panellists (84%) therefore endorsed an exercise regimen to be part of the standard care.
Finally, the panellists were asked whether or not they agreed that patients should be informed about the magnitude of benefit (in terms of overall survival) of interventions with a known small-to-marginal benefit, and be offered no treatment as a reasonable alternative. Predictably, in the present era of “shared decision-making”, 92% of the panellists voted “yes” on this last question.
