Date: Tuesday 11 December 2018

Location: BMA House, 20 Tavistock Square, London, WC1H 9HW
Presentation and panel debate to launch our new analysis on the state of breast cancer care for older women in Europe.
Our analysis of evidence from across Europe, provides fresh insight into the impact of ageist assumptions and stereotypes on the treatment of older women with breast cancer. It suggests that older women with breast cancer may be undertreated, because of assumptions based on their age, rather than on clinical realities.
Join us as we discuss our findings, and consider their implications for policy and practice.
