The St.Gallen International Breast Cancer Conference (SGBCC) concludes with its prestigious St.Gallen International Breast Cancer Consensus Session. In this last session, a panel with breast cancer specialists from all over the world discusses developments from the past two years in the treatment of individuals with early breast cancer.
A skilled moderator guides panelists from all relevant fields through the session to provide evidence-based input. The panelists reach a consensus on challenging issues and define adapted diagnostic and therapeutic aspects. Consideration of cultural issues and economic influences is a major challenge.
Based on this discussion the St.Gallen International Breast Cancer Consensus Guidelines are published a few months after SGBCC.
