Breast cancer detection should be carried out by a team involving a number of health professionals from various medical, nursing and allied health disciplines who have undergone specialist training in breast cancer beyond that given in their general training as has been stated by the European Society of Breast Cancer Specialists EUSOMA ; However the availability of this kind of education varies very much, even amongst highly developed European countries. For the above described reason this project aims at increasing the competences of early breast cancer detection and diagnostic procedures among health care professionals, students and teachers in the fields, following the principles of interprofessional education IPE.
Since its inception ESO has devoted special attention to breast cancer, because it is the most common cancer in women worldwide and is the field of research of its founder, Umberto Veronesi, and its Scientific Director, Alberto Costa. Over the past three decades, ESO organised many educational events and sessions on breast cancer treatment, stressing the crucial need for a multidisciplinary approach to the disease, with an active involvement of patients. InESO established a special task force for the development of international guidelines for metastatic breast cancer.
October is breast cancer awareness month and we asked personal trainer and fitness coach Scott Keppel about training after a breast cancer diagnosis. Here are answers to some of the questions he gets asked the most. Exercise has been shown to reduce fatigue, along with increasing lean muscle mass and improving functional fitness. It also is proven to relieve stress and help you feel better all around.
Welcome to an Introduction to Breast Cancer! Join me as we start to learn about what breast cancer is, the epidemiology of this disease and the risks associated with it. What is cancer and how does it work?
Data indicate higher cure rates and longer times of survival in cancer patients who regularly exercise. Materials and Methods: A total of 50 female Sprague-Dawley rats were used in the experiment. Animals at 1 month of age were intraperitoneally injected with N-methyl-N-nitrosourea.
The Dutch Expert Centre for Screening LRCB is a knowledge driven organization that aims for optimal medical and physico-technical quality of screening programmes. Our experts both supervise and contribute. In this way the LRCB continuously improves the quality of early detection and diagnosis, of breast cancer and tuberculosis.
What is it? By offering premier, targeted training in breast cancer science and public policy, the Center readies breast cancer advocates to become agents of action and change in the mission to eradicate breast cancer. Who is it for?
This international course will address a crucial question for clinical, radiation and medical oncologists: how to combine systemic treatments and radiation therapy in breast cancer? In other words, is it advisable to continue or to stop the systemic treatments once a radiotherapy treatment is decided? With the ambitious objective of evaluating treatment associations for breast cancer patients and discussing the mechanisms of interaction, we aim at presenting the evidenced-based data and through lively discussions and brainstorming, propose to change or not the current clinical practice.
