EUROPA DONNA MBC Advocacy Webinar 2022

EUROPA DONNA – The European Breast Cancer Coalition is dedicated to giving people with metastatic breast cancer the tools to advocate for best practices that address the unique needs of those living with the disease.

We are pleased to announce that Europa Donna will hold a MBC Advocacy Webinar 17-18 June 2022. The webinar will be open to approximately 30 MBC advocates. Building on our past conferences and trainings, this webinar will ensure the continued development of advocacy activities on behalf of women with MBC in countries throughout Europe.

The MBC Advocacy webinar will take place over two days. Friday 17 June will consist of sessions from 10.00 until 12.30 and from 14.30 until 17.05 covering Treatment and research specific to MBC, Patient Doctor Communications is a Two-way Street, The benefits of exercise and physical activity in managing side effects and The financial impact of MBC and inequalities among countries. There will also be two workshops on: Overcoming the Stigma and Taboos of an MBC Diagnosis and Managing Side effects. The session on Saturday 18 June will take place from 10.00 until 12.15 and from 13.15 until 15.35 and will be dedicated to the MBC Advocacy/Communications skills training module.

Those who apply to participate should either be a breast cancer advocate who has MBC or an advocate who does not have MBC but is currently conducting MBC advocacy programmes through a European breast cancer advocacy organisation. Anyone who has already participated in a Europa Donna MBC Webinar Conference Communications Skills training module will be eligible to participate only on Friday 17 June 2022.
