Update from BCNA Policy and Advocacy on the Breast Reconstruction Report

BCNA Policy & Advocacy has been busy implementing our action plan from the Breast Reconstruction in Australia 2021 report, launched in September 2021. Key activities have included meetings held with most state and territory governments to advocate for the recommendations outlined in the report.

BCNA also continues to drive work in several stakeholder groups including the Australian Access to Breast Reconstruction Collaborative Group (AABRCG). BCNA has liaised with the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners to review AABRCG’s breast reconstruction resources and endorse them as best practice statements to be shared with GPs nationally. Formal endorsement of a position statement titled Access to Post Mastectomy Breast Reconstruction Information and Services Australia is also being progressed by the General Surgeons Australia group. 

If you missed BCNA's 'Breast Reconstruction – Options and Expectation' Virtual Conference in October, you can still watch on demand via the following link https://kapara.rdbk.com.au/landers/393082.html
