General information

The Workshop is accredited by CMR with 16 EMC points

Aim of the Workshop

In this workshop participants will obtain a thorough knowledge of the fundamentals and state-ofthe-art breast cancer surgical techniques and management according to current guidelines.

Moreover, we aim to standardise treatment and to encourage collaboration through multidisciplinary teams in institutions that don’t function as a breast unit centre.

Besides theoretical presentations, participants will follow live surgeries (oncoplastic breast surgery techniques, sentinel lymph node biopsy, axillary clearance, mastectomy techniques etc.) and will be able to practise the received information during interactive case discussions.
