Assessment of NeedOver 200,000 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer annually, accounting for 30% of all new cancer cases in women1. This makes it the most common cancer diagnosis in women. This program’s intent is to increase the quality of breast care provided to women in the United States, Canada and Europe through the interdisciplinary education of breast health professionals. Many breast healthcare practices are not standardized2 and this conference provides a learning and networking environment enabling breast professionals to learn about the latest treatments, technologies, procedures, become certified and sharpen their skills in detecting and treating breast cancer and other breast diseases. This conference provides a review of selected topics throughout the field of breast health care. A review of peer-reviewed journal articles, literature, new guidelines and past participant evaluation analyses have identified areas of focus which include the evolution of a breast center, breast specific gamma imaging, using breast MRI as a screening tool, improving RT/Radiologist relations, digital positioning, endocrine therapy3, ultrasound imaging, patient satisfaction, biopsy techniques, lobular neoplasia, reverse axillary mapping, patient tracking tools, treating the breast cancer survivor, coding and reimbursement procedures, serving the underserved communities, reconstruction options, starting a sexuality program in a breast center and assessing the high risk patient. In each of these areas, lectures will include controversies, recent developments and recommendations from experts in the breast health care field. This program has been developed specifically for the entire breast center team from administrative staff to breast surgeons. It is the intent of our educational activity to provide breast health care professionals objective, evidence-based clinical content, which they can incorporate into their practice to improve the clinical care and outcomes of their patients.
