Breast Cancer in Young Women Sixth International Consensus Symposium

07.10.2022  -  08.10.2022

Online

Description

Background

Breast cancer in young women is a complex disease, occurring when women are at the peak of their reproductive years, family life and careers. Being a somewhat rare disease, the optimal management of these patients is based on scientific data derived from clinical trials mostly conducted on older women.

Many aspects of breast cancer in young women are therefore poorly understood (e.g., aetiology and biology among others) and research is much needed in this field. In addition, young women have many years ahead of them to suffer the long-term effects of treatment and specific survivorship issues (fertility and job, among others).

The Breast Cancer in Young Women Sixth International Consensus Symposium 2022 will address challenges and opportunities in different cultural and economic settings, follow-up care, diagnostic and treatment guidelines, from early to advanced breast cancer and survivorship, updating the available evidence and generating future research concepts and collaborations with an interactive, international, and collaborative spirit. It will also include a Consensus Session that will form the basis for a Consensus Guidelines Manuscript to be published after the Symposium.

Learning Objectives

  • In-depth learning and update of the scientific and clinical aspects of breast cancer in young women
  • Highlighting of the importance of multi-disciplinary management
  • Focus on clinical research priorities and future perspectives, involving patients’ advocates in setting the agenda
  • Participation in the discussion of consensus guidelines

Target Group

Medical Oncologists – Surgeons – Gynaecologists – Radiation Oncologists – Breast Radiologists – Pathologists – iOnco-geneticists – Nurses – Patient Advocates – Psycho-oncologists.
