Dear Colleagues,

The breast cancer program at NCCCR has taken the lead in establishing an educational initiative for clinical teams by developing a two day masterclass activity to share the latest development in the management of breast cancer patients and facilitate best practice knowledge sharing.

These up-to-date developments are based on research and informed evidence that can be used to guide prevention, diagnosis, and treatment options to improve patient outcomes and save lives.

The first masterclass in breast cancer management to be held in Doha emphasizes the importance of a multidisciplinary approach. It is expected to attract around 300 participants including medical oncologists, pathologists, gynecologists, surgeons, doctors and physicians from PHCC and the private sector to meet and network.

This masterclass activity which has earned a total of 10 Continuing Professional Development (CPD) hours - categories 1, accredited from Qatar Council for Healthcare Practitioners (QCHP) will focus on comprehensive, evidenced-based clinical practices related to breast cancer care within a multidisciplinary setting. It will discuss the importance of analyzing and debating available facts to provide the most up to date knowledge in the management of breast cancer. It will also develop recommendations with the ultimate goal of improving standards of care, increasing survival rates, and enhancing patients’ quality of life. 

It is therefore with great enthusiasm that we invite you to attend the First Masterclass in Breast Cancer Management that will take place on 28-29 April 2017, at Ritz Carlton- Doha. 

Under the theme, “Moving towards Comprehensive Breast Cancer Care”, the masterclass will include a number of plenary lectures, case based discussion sessions, followed by some social activities in and around Qatar for our distinguished guests.

We hope you will join us and we look forward to sharing with you as much knowledge and expertise as possible.
