Theme of the Day:
To identify issues and discuss potential solutions around achieving best care and treatment for all patients with breast cancer (primary and secondary) in UK, including enhancing options for research into curative treatments for secondary breast cancer.
Although within the UK, generally, treatment of Breast Cancer is good, nevertheless the best possible treatment is not available to every patient with breast cancer who would benefit, within an optimal time-frame, for various reasons which will be discussed through the day.
In addition there is the general problem that secondary breast cancer is incurable currently. The purpose of the day is to explore how current initiatives, together with new unexplored initiatives can be implemented to maximise quality of treatment and cure for breast cancer within UK (and beyond, but the purpose of the day is primarily UK).
