We are glad to note that palliative and end-of-life care got its place in the Global Summit on Breast Health.

Ms Julia Chase, writing on behalf of Breast Health Global Initiative (BHGI), informs us about the event in October:

Global Summit on International Breast Health
October 3-5, 2012Vienna

The GLOBAL SUMMIT on INTERNATIONAL BREAST HEALTH: Guidelines for International Breast Health and Cancer Control – Supportive Care and Quality of Life, will be convened by the Breast Health Global Initiative (BHGI), in co-operation with the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), Programme of Action for Cancer Therapy (PACT) of the United Nations, October 3-5, 2012, VIENNA, AUSTRIA.

The Summit will provide a unique open-registration event in the international health community to enhance knowledge of breast health care delivery in low- and middle-income countries (LMCs) from the perspective of Early Disease, Late Disease and End-of-life & Palliative Care.

Scientifically peer-reviewed Guidelines for International Breast Health and Cancer Control – Supportive Care and Quality of Life will result from the 2012 summit, as important and rare medical tools, that will also serve to highlight neglected QOL and palliation issues through mixed-method implementation science research.

The Breast Health Global Initiative (BHGI) is co-sponsored by Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center and Susan G. Komen for the Cure®.
