The Breast Centre North West, based at Letterkenny General Hospital and the Donegal Clinical Research Academy recently organised an international Breast Cancer multidisciplinary course which took place at the Royal College of Surgeons in Dublin.
This course was unique as it brought together all the disciplines involved in breast cancer care for a one day event. Presented at the meeting was a combination of the latest evidence in breast cancer care and case scenario discussions. Attendees were updated on some of the latest developments in breast cancer care.
Commenting, Geraldine MacGregor, Breast Nurse Specialist at Letterkenny Hospital said “This is the second year we held this course, which is unique internationally and has received excellent reviews from attendees.
“I am pleased that Letterkenny could bring four international world leaders in breast cancer care to Ireland to complement the excellent National Faculty of twenty consultants in surgery, radiology, oncology, pathology, radiation oncology nursing and allied health.
“The international leaders included Mr Asgeirsson from Iceland, Professor Degnim from the Mayo Clinic United States, Ms MacNeill from The Royal Marsden, London and Dr Rubio from Barcelona in Spain”.
Breast Surgeon in Letterkenny General Hospital, Mr Michael Sugrue noted that the day was highly successful and rated by the attendees as one of the best breast cancer courses that they had attended.Tags:
