‘Early detection of breast cancer’ presentations
Posted on February 13, 2019
Almost 100 Tasmanian GPs and practice nurses attended education events in February on the role of the GP in the early detection of breast cancer.
In addition to events already held in Hobart and Launceston, a session is planned for the north west in coming months – watch this space.
Ms Ward’s presentation includes an overview of breast cancer in Tasmania, breast screening locally and nationally, and breast screening vs diagnostic services.
Mr Finkelde presented the latest findings on:
- the benefits of early detection of breast cancer
- the correct referral pathways
- breast pathologies and surgery/treatment options
- breast density and risk factors.
The education events are a collaboration between Primary Health Tasmania, the Tasmanian Health Service and Mr Finkelde.
