Just diagnosed with metastatic breast cancer, what’s next?

This month we hosted a webcast, ‘Just diagnosed with metastatic breast cancer, what’s next?

We heard from Medical Oncologist Professor Fran Boyle, Metastatic McGrath Breast Care Nurse Alice Gibson, BCNA Consumer Representative Ros Casperson and BCNA member Cybele Orton.  

The webcast addressed what is important to know in those first few weeks after a diagnosis of metastatic breast cancer including navigating the health system, treatment options, identifying key members of your treating team, and the support and care available to you. 

Watch the on-demand video via the BCNA website.


Information Forum:

This month we’ve hosted two online Information Forums that will be available to watch on-demand in the coming weeks via the BCNA website.

We’re hosting another online Information Forum on health and wellbeing on Thursday 8 September. You can register here.
