Welcome to a webinar on new possibilities for personalised breast cancer prevention

We are happy to invite you to an online webinar discussing the latest possibilities for personalised breast cancer prevention. This webinar is intended for all healthcare professionals, including family physicians, geneticists, radiologists, gynaecologists, oncologists, medical nurses and everybody else, who is interested in breast cancer prevention.

The Problem:

Current breast cancer screening in Norway saves lives but is aimed only for women at age 50-69. Many breast cancer cases occur among younger women who never reach screening.

The Solution:

The modern solution is to implement earlier and more frequent screening and other possible preventive measures for women at increased risk of breast cancer. But what are the modern options for breast cancer risk assessment and how can they be applied in real life in Norwegian health care?

This webinar discusses new possibilities for precision prevention of breast cancer based on the methods and solutions researched, developed, and tested in the AnteNOR project.


Date and time: 30.05.2024 at 15:00-16:15
