Europa Donna commits to equal breast cancer care

Added: Friday 4 November 2011

The European Breast Cancer Coalition held its 10th annual conference in late October. The conference, named Europa Donna, brought together breast cancer specialists and advocates from 37 European countries. One of Europa Donna's key priorities for the coming year is the establishment of a specialist breast unit accreditation scheme across Europe, so that women will know which units meet European quality standards. This knowledge will help ensure access to equal quality of care.
