Embedding best practice in breast cancer care

The LCA breast pathway clinical forum held on 17 September focused on three specific aspects of the breast pathway:

  • Offering patients immediate breast reconstruction (IBR)
  • Implementing a 23 hour discharge pathway
  • Improving access to specialist metastatic services

Drawing on trust data, pathways and protocols as well as recent audits, group discussions explored the challenges and solutions in embedding the best practice pathway for each of these.

The LCA breast pathway group will be discussing next steps, and work will continue to deliver these service improvements to ensure high quality and consistent service provision across the LCA.   

The presentations from the event are available here.
