Conclusion

Jolie Pitt would certainly agree with women taking an active role in finding out as much as they can about preventive surgery, as well as understanding the pros and cons, the supporting evidence, and the potential risks of the procedure. Nurses and physicians should be advocates for women by providing up-to-date and evidence-based information while supporting a woman's right to make informed decisions about her body.
