Metastatic breast cancer, advanced cancer that has spread beyond the breast, accounts for greater than 90 percent of cancer morbidity and mortality. This half-day symposium will present updates on basic science, clinical, and survivorship issues that relate to the development and treatment of metastatic breast cancer. Learn how Komen-funded breast cancer research will answer the questions most important to all those affected by metastatic breast cancer; raise the bar for how advocates and researchers work together; and make sure the unique and valuable patient perspectives are included in scientific discussions and decision-making.
This conference is designed for people with metastatic breast cancer and those who have had breast cancer, nurses, healthcare professionals and others who participate in the care of patients with metastatic breast cancer.
At the completion of this conference participants should be able to:
- Understand the basic science of metastasis;
- Identify treatments to improve patient outcomes;
- Understand how metastatic patients can interact with their healthcare providers to get optimum care.
