While scientific breakthroughs are giving people with breast cancer more hopeful outcomes, areas that need improvement in this area of healthcare are cancer diagnosis and cancer treatment rates, both of which have suffered setbacks as a result of the disruption caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.

This CPD webinar on breast cancer examines the latest research and clinical innovations in breast cancer care and oncology nursing. It discusses the role genomics and genetic testing is playing in speeding up cancer treatment options for patients; experts discuss the unmet needs of patients in early and metastatic stages of triple-negative breast cancer; and the lived experience of breast cancer is shared, including the inequalities experienced in breast reconstruction options for BME patients within the NHS.

This webinar took place on Tuesday 25 May 2023.

This event was sponsored by Breast Cancer Now and the UK Charity for Triple Negative Breast Cancer, supported by an educational grant from Eisai UK
