01 Nov Patient Advocate Perspective: Advancing ILC Research, Screening, Treatment and Follow-up Care
ILC Patient Priorities
ILC patient advocates attending the 2016 First International ILC Symposium developed a white paper, Advancing Lobular Breast Cancer Research, Screening, Treatment and Follow-up Care.
This paper outlines advocate-identified opportunities to promote ILC as a distinct cancer requiring:
- Refinements in screening and patient care
- Enhancements to patient and provider education
- Substantive measures to accelerate efficient research.
Many of the conclusions in this paper form the basis for LBCA’s formation and our mission.
