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. 

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?
