ONLINE EVENT: Breast Cancer in Young Women Workshop for Patients and Patients Advocates

Not eligible for ESCO credits

03.10.2020

WORKSHOP

Breast cancer

Description



Due to the current situation with COVID-19 we have decided that the Workshop will be held online.

Chair:
O. Pagani, CH


FOREWORD
Young women with breast cancer face a complex and somewhat poorly understood disease, occurring when they also handle family duties and planning, and professional careers. In addition, young women have many years ahead of them to suffer the potential long-term effects of treatment and specific survivorship issues (fertility and job among others).

The challenging international health situation forced us to turn the in-person BREAST CANCER IN YOUNG WOMEN FIFTH INTERNATIONAL CONSENSUS SYMPOSIUM into a virtual event.

We decided to include in the virtual symposium also the 2nd patient-oriented workshop to provide patients and advocates appropriate, updated and comprehensive information to help them make informed decisions and promote appropriate care in their countries of origin.

We have done our best to design and build a virtual workshop able to keep an interactive, international, and collaborative approach.

We hope that many patients and advocates will decide to join us online and profit of this opportunity to better understand and discuss the challenges of this disease.

Olivia Pagani
