17th MEET THE PROFESSOR

Advanced International Breast Cancer Course 2021
(AIBCC 2021)

AIBCC 2021 will be held both as an in-class course and as a live webinar!

Presentation

Objectives of the Course

Mortality from breast cancer is declining in most countries thanks to effective screening programs, early diagnosis, molecular characterization of the different subtypes and biology-driven treatments. A multidisciplinary management of breast cancer patients is therefore the key to success and a breast multidisciplinary team should include – besides the “classic” clinical specialties – pathologists, molecular biologists and geneticists. Furthermore, the availability of multiple diagnostic and therapeutic choices, the increasing costs of new technologies and drugs and the issue of sustainability represent a new challenge for socially-responsible clinicians. With this goal in mind, the Programme includes lectures on molecular characterization, updated treatments of early and advanced disease, management of difficult cases and hereditary syndromes and issues of sustainability and drug access across countries.

Target Audience of the Course

  • Gynaecologists and obstetrics

  • Medical oncologists

  • Pathologists

  • Radiologists

  • Radiation oncologists

  • Surgeons

  • Biologists

  • Pharmacists

  • Nurses
