The treatment of breast cancer has for many years been dependent on the interaction of professionals from many disciplines
Research into improving our understanding of this complex disease and prospects for improving its prevention and treatment also require interdisciplinary collaboration to make meaningful advances. Patients are at the heart of this collaboration, and patients play a key part in this symposium.
Bursaries are available to breast cancer patients and people affected by breast cancer to attend the UK Interdisciplinary Breast Cancer Symposium. The bursary covers registrations, travel and accommodation expenses.
The UKIBCS Organising Committee includes two patient representatives who are involved in organising the programme. Patient representatives are invited to be involved as faculty at meeting, both to present and as co-chairs. The current patient representatives on the Organising Committee are Adrienne Morgan and Mairead Mackenzie.
