Ethical and Legal Considerations in Breast Density Workshop South Australia 23 August 2018
Ethical and Legal Considerations in Breast Density
Thursday 23rd August 10 am – 4 pm
Basil Hetzel Institute, 37A Woodville Rd, Woodville, South Australia
Breast density refers to white and bright regions on mammograms. High density masks tumours and is an independent risk factor for breast cancer. Whether or not to tell women if they have high density when they have a screening mammogram is a sensitive and contentious issue, there are reasons both for and against breast density notification.
In this workshop, experts in breast density, breast cancer screening, health ethics and the law, together with patients and clinicians, will identify and explore ethical and legal issues associated with breast density notification.
ALL THOSE WITH AN INTEREST IN BREAST DENSITY ARE ENCOURAGED TO ATTEND
Attendance is free, however you need to register for catering purposes by filling in the details below and returning by Friday 17th August.
