GP continuing professional development
Breast cancer treatment - information session (webinar) for GPs
Date: Wednesday 1 March, 5.30pm - 6.30pm
To register: visit the VCC Alliance website.
Over the past five years a significant number of new drugs have been introduced to treat breast cancer. Many patients, even with metastatic breast cancer, can remain on the same treatment for years.
This webinar features expert speakers and is aimed at updating GPs about new breast cancer drugs including:
- how these work
- the main side effects, and
- the signs and symptoms of these effects that you (and your patient) need to look out for.
With time provided for Q&A, this event aims to increase GPs' knowledge and understanding of current treatment options and best practices.
Additionally, the event aims to improve the communication and collaboration between GPs and specialists to ensure the best outcomes for patients with breast cancer.
