Breast Care 101: What You Need to Know

This educational activity is designed to improve the knowledge of primary care physicians and gynecologists about the treatment of breast cancer patients and the care of these patients in the survivorship period. The treatment of breast cancer is constantly changing; from surgical approaches, to screening guidelines, to chemotherapy regimens. These changes affect post-treatment sequelae in patients who are often seen by primary care physicians and gynecologists. As our cancer survivor population grows, it will be important for these physicians to be able to identify which treatments patients have received for their breast cancer, the downstream side effects they will experience as a result of those treatments, and how to treat those side effects. The purpose of our activity is to provide the knowledge base for the treatment of breast cancer patients and how to care for them in survivorship. This program will also discuss the treatment of benign breast disease.
