Treatments for Breast Cancer - Options and Considerations Virtual Conference Thursday July 15 2021

Hello everyone,

Join Breast Cancer Network Australia (BCNA) for insight into the latest treatments for breast cancer, as well as for a glimpse into the pioneering research shaping the future of how we treat the disease. 

This virtual conference is a must-join for people wanting to know about what treatments are available, what treatments are on the horizon and the options and considerations that might impact your own experience, including managing side effects.

Renowned international guest speaker, Medical Oncologist and Director of the Breast Oncology Center at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in the United States Dr Eric Winer will deliver a session on ‘new frontiers’ – what the future of breast cancer treatment holds.

The conference will be held online on Thursday July 15 6:00pm – 9:00pm and will provide information relevant to patients with both early breast cancer and metastatic disease, delivered by a panel of national experts.

The program includes breakout sessions which will provide opportunities for attendees with different needs to access information relevant to their diagnosis and situation, as well as connect with others going through a similar experience. Breakout session options include lymphoedema, genetics and family history, supportive care for metastatic breast cancer and long-term side effects of breast cancer treatment. The conference will also address the important role of your GP in follow-up care.

    I have just registered, but wondering if any of it is being recorded? I'm definitely interested in more than one of the break out sessions

    this would be great if it is available afterwards as I know quite a few TNBC ladies on the facebook page, are unable to watch this at the time it is on in their timezone.... BCNA please have as a web based video for people to link into later on.
