EUROPA DONNA MBC Advocacy Webinar 2020

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 30-31 October 2020. The webinar will be open to approximately 30 MBC advocates. Building on our past conferences and trainings, we feel that it is important to hold this webinar to ensure the development of advocacy activities on behalf of women with MBC.

Eligible participants should either be a breast cancer advocate who has MBC or an advocate who does not have MBC but is currently conducting your MBC advocacy programmes. This person must not have attended the 1st MBC Advocacy Conference in 2017 or the MBC Training in 2018 where the MBC Advocacy/Communications skills training module was offered.

The MBC Advocacy webinar will take place over two days. Friday 30 October will consist of two sessions covering treatment and research specific to MBC (10:00-12:30) and a session dedicated to living with MBC including workshops on: survivorship and quality of life, psycho social support and return to work/insurance issues (15:00-17:00). The session on Saturday 31 October will run from 10:00-15:35 (lunch break 12:15-13:15) and is dedicated to the MBC Advocacy/Communications skills training module.

Applications should be submitted by 19 October 2020 to conference@europadonna.org and should include the following:

1. Completed application form
2. A short paragraph outlining why attending this meeting would be important to her future advocacy work

Due to the limited number spaces available, those accepted will be notified by 20 October 2020 and will be automatically registered for the webinar.

After the conference, each participant will be asked to provide a summary of next steps and a report after three months on work undertaken as a result of the conference.
