Dr Zdenkowski’s research interests include: decision-making about treatment for early breast cancer, and pre-operative chemotherapy or endocrine therapy for early stage breast cancer, and is leading a multicenter study to evaluate a decision support tool for patients who are considering preoperative therapy. This study will form the basis for a PhD thesis.
