The International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) is today hosting a meeting of an international multidisciplinary group of experts in breast cancer screening evaluations.
The participants include Dr Robert Smith (Senior Vice President, American Cancer Society, USA), Dr Raúl Murillo (Director, Centro Javeriano de Oncología, Colombia), Dr Sonali Johnson (Head of Knowledge, Advocacy and Policy, Union for International Cancer Control), and Dr Eleni Tolma (Associate Professor, Kuwait University Health Sciences Center).
The aim of the workshop is to guide the development and implementation of shared decision making (SDM) online tools to help women make decisions in breast cancer screening. The SDM tool will be developed and piloted in France through the CANelles project, which is funded by the Institut National du Cancer (InCa).
The outcomes of the workshop will be published in a peer-reviewed journal in 2020.
