This event has now passed.

Date: 15 June 2012
Venue: UWE Exhibition and Conference Centre
Time: 9.30 - 16.00


Breast cancer treatment and care continues to develop improvements to ensure that women with breast cancer receive up-to-date and well co-ordinated care. This requires close collaboration between a wide range of groups to ensure that all needs are met. There are many initiatives taking place to help this process on a local, national and international level.

The aims of this one day conference are to provide an update on a range of issues that influence the management of women with breast cancer. All those with an interest in this field: patients, relatives, nurses, researchers, health care professionals to include clinical and biomedical scientists, surgeons, oncologists and general practitioners will find this conference useful.

The speakers are international experts in their respective areas and between them touch on topics such as:

  • influence of diet on metabolic pathways and cancer
  • latest in biomedical research
  • surgery and therapies
  • new developments in service delivery
  • follow-up support and survivorship
  • international perspective

The programme for the day is designed to meet continuing professional development needs for professional attendees, but also to provide an opportunity for women with breast cancer and their supporters to hear about current developments from both local and international experts from the academic world and from clinical practice.
