Session Code: DC09
Title: Breast Cancer: National and International Disparities
Date and Time of Session: Monday, October 23: 9:45 am - 5:15 pm
Description: At the conclusion of this activity, learners will be able to: 1. Describe disparities in breast cancer based on tumor biology, race/ethnicity, age, and stage at presentation 2. Enunciate international disparities in breast cancer care across various regional perspectives, and the need for resource- and culturally-appropriate guidelines 3. Describe the impact of the healthcare system, including access to and cost of care, on disparities in breast cancer outcomes by comparing and contrasting the US and UK system 4. Critically evaluate the impact that provider specialization, location, and patient population may have on breast cancer disparities, and how to mitigate these. Breast cancer is the most common female malignancy in the United States and worldwide. As a hormonally driven disease, its incidence and mortality rates within different populations and countries are modified not only by medical availability but environmental, reproductive, hereditary, and dietary influences. In the US the incidence of breast cancer in Caucasian women is higher than minority women, but when health care access is equal, there are still differences in size, stage and grade of breast cancer for many minority women. Progress in the detection and treatment of breast cancer has yielded improved outcomes overall, but health care costs and access barriers have resulted in substantial inequities in the delivery of these medical advances in the United States, other developed and developing countries.
