Good morning everyone,

BCNA are holding a virtual conference on Tuesday 12 October, 6.00 - 9.00m AEST on Breast Reconstruction - Options and Expectations.

Choosing whether to have a breast reconstruction is a very personal decision and it is important to do what feels right for you. Some women decide to have reconstruction to restore their confidence, or prefer to wear a breast prosthesis, while some women choose not to have reconstruction or to wear a breast prosthesis. Alternatively, you can also choose to have delayed reconstruction to consider your breast reconstruction options at a later time. 

There are different options available for breast reconstruction and much to consider. Your breast surgeon and Breast Care Nurse can explain the options that may suit you best. It is important that you take time to understand your options and be involved in discussions with your specialist team to ensure you feel confident in your decision. 

Join us for BCNA’s virtual conference to explore the different options of breast reconstruction that may be available to you, managing expectations, the important considerations, the emotional and physical impacts of breast reconstruction as well as key findings from BCNA’s recently launched Breast Reconstruction in Australia 2021 Report which was a result of a survey of 3,350 respondents about their breast reconstruction experiences. Additionally, there will be an opportunity to ask questions to the speakers at the end of each session.

    Hi, just double checking your times for QLD, ACT, NSW, TAS and VIC is correct. Daylight savings will have started by them which means QLD will have a different time wont it?
