on Friday, 07 August 2015. Posted in Press Releases, Education

Breast Centre North West and Donegal Clinical Research Academy organised an international Breast Cancer Multidisciplinary course at the Royal College of Surgeons in Dublin on Friday 31st July 2015. This course is unique in that it brings together all the disciplines involved in breast cancer care in a one day course that is a mixture of the latest evidence in breast cancer care and case scenario discussion. All attendees are exposed to some of the latest developments in breast cancer care.

Geraldine MacGregor, Breast Nurse Specialist at Letterkenny Hospital, said that this course is unique worldwide and it has received excellent reviews from its initial debut last year. She was 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.

Mr Michael Sugrue said the day was highly successful and rated by the attendees as one of the best breast cancer courses that they had attended.
