Breast Cancer Education Series: oligometastatic breast cancer treatment

Please join VCCC Research and Education Lead, Dr Belinda Yeo, who will lead May’s masterclass focussing on treatment options in oligometastatic breast cancer (OMBC).

 

Treatment for oligometastatic and advanced disease have improved substantially over the past decade. Molecular subtyping, improved stage imaging and the role of liquid biopsy have led to an increase in the detection of small volume metastases.

In this webinar Dr Belinda Yeo and a multidisciplinary panel of experts will discuss emerging data, aggressive treatment options and the impact on patient quality of life. They will explore the differences in oligometastatic treatment and metastatic treatment options. Participants will have the opportunity to participate in a virtual discussion.

Facilitated by

Dr Belinda Yeo, VCCC Research and Education Lead
