Breast Cancer in Europe

Breast Cancer in Europe Participants at the Second European Breast Cancer Conference called on nations throughout Europe to establish accredited breast care programs that stress the importance of collaboration among surgeons, radiologists, pathologists, psychologists, and other professionals involved in women's health care. At the end of the conference, which was held in Brussels in September, more than 3000 participants used a computerized voting system to establish goals that are contained in a document called the Brussels Statement (available at http://www.fecs.be/index.html). The document sets an agenda for three major groups: the Breast Cancer Group of the European Organization for Research and Treatment in Cancer; the European Society of Mastology; and Europa Donna, the European Breast Cancer Coalition. In addition to calling for multidisciplinary, accredited breast care programs, conference participants also asked that breast cancer incidence and mortality data collected by the programs be entered into a common European database. Additional recommendations include the provision of high-quality mammography screening to all European women aged 50 to 75 and increased government support for clinical trials of breast cancer therapies. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png JAMA American Medical Association
