Objectives

With an overarching goal of optimising the management of primary breast cancer in older women, the event's aims are:

  • To develop an in-depth understanding around the biology and treatment options
  • To explore the specific physical and psychosocial needs and consideration including patients perspective
  • To gain insight into the development of a holistic and multidisciplinary management approach and the importance of supporting research

Is this for you?

We welcome members of multidisciplinary clinical and research teams with an interest in this area, including breast surgeons, oncologists, geriatricians, pathologists, clinical nurse specialists, researchers, and their trainees, as well as patient advocates.

Past delegates also include pharmacists, medical physicists, patients and their carers.

The programme includes lectures by external and local faculty with a number of interactive discussions, sharing of patients’ experiences, and abstract presentations.
