Date: Oct 3-5th, 2012

Location: Vienna, Austria.

The 2012 Global Summit on International Breast Health will be convened by the Breast Health Global Initiative (BHGI), organised in co-operation with the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) Programme of Action for Cancer Therapy (PACT) of the United Nations.
International presentations, discussions, workshops and professional networking will connect national and international organizations and experts from around the world to analyze issues of Supportive Care and quality of life (QOL) in breast cancer care delivery.
The Global Summit will be a high-level scientific forum with global geographic, multi-disciplinary representation of approximately 70 expert representatives.  In a structured three-day format, experts will analyze Supportive Care and QOL issues for breast cancer patients in LMCs from the perspective of Survivorship and Follow-up Care, Treatment-related Quality of Life and Supportive Care, and End-of-Life and Palliative Care.  This will serve as the basis for the development of the first Guidelines for International Breast Health and Cancer Control – Supportive Care and Quality of Life for LMCs. The scientifically peer-reviewed publications resulting from the 2012 summit will be important and rare medical tools that will also serve to highlight neglected QOL and palliation issues through mixed-method implementation science research.

International presentations, discussions, workshops and professional networking will connect national and international organizations and experts from around the world to analyze issues of Supportive Care and QOL in breast cancer care delivery.
Three Consensus Working Groups will focus on key issues on how existing healthcare resources can most effectively be organized to improve palliative outcomes and integrate new supportive care and quality of life services within existing medical infrastructures.
