Global Oncology Lecture Series: Breast Cancer Early Diagnosis: Phased Implementation for Downstaging Disease
January 27 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
The Fred Hutch Global Oncology (GO) program hosts a monthly seminar series titled, GO Lecture Series, to bring together those working in the global cancer field to share research or program updates and establish closer working collaborations. Each seminar includes an hour-long presentation and discussion during which speakers showcase their work and findings. The series allows Fred Hutch faculty, employees, Consortium members, students, and global cancer or global health community members to be a part of this important conversation.
The January occurrence of the Global Oncology Lecture Series seminar will feature Benjamin O. Anderson, MD, FACS presenting on the topic of Breast Cancer Early Diagnosis: Phased Implementation for Downstaging Disease. The Improved breast cancer outcomes depends on early diagnosis followed by effective treatment, which is difficult to achieve in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs). ‘Phased Implementation’ is a strategic approach to improving healthcare processes and outcomes in measurable steps. By organizing healthcare networks that balance quality (centralization) with access (decentralization), patient navigation can achieve prompt diagnosis using sustainable, resource-sensitive care pathways.
