19-20 October 2013 Prague – Czech Republic
Ensuring quality services and equal access
Is the theme of this year’s conference which will describe the essential breast services that women should receive and provide some strategies to advocate for their implementation across all European countries. Participants will learn about the European Commission Breast cancer service accreditation project, as well as hear from experts on personalised medicine, advances in treatment, and evidence on prevention. In addition, advocates will gain greater understanding into survivorship issues and how to ensure access to state of the art services. Workshops will focus on how to advocate for these services on behalf of special populations.
Join us in the magnificent, golden city of Prague – a spectacular setting in which to meet and network with advocates from many countries to gain inspiration, knowledge and expertise to” ensure quality services and equal access.”
