Webinar: Breast cancer and HRT
Thursday 20 June 2024 | 19:00–20:00

There are still many myths surrounding the use of Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) with breast cancer.

In primary care, clinicians need a solid understanding of how to manage patients with breast cancer risk who are interested in taking HRT, and when to remove the barriers for those who could benefit from it.

During this webinar, Dr Alison Macbeth will discuss how you can put breast cancer and the use of HRT into perspective for your patients on a case-by-case basis. Following the presentation, there will be an opportunity to pose your questions to Dr Macbeth and webinar Chair, Dr Katie Barber.

Dr Alison Macbeth
Accredited British Menopause Society Specialist and Breast Speciality Doctor

Dr Macbeth is passionate about meeting the often-overlooked needs of women in all stages of treatment and recovery from breast cancer, and also those with a high-risk family history of breast cancer. She was inspired to start a menopause clinic within her NHS breast unit, after seeing patients who were cancer free but suffering from the menopausal side effects of treatment. Dr Macbeth believes that all women, including those treated for breast cancer, deserve access to high quality, evidence-based menopause care and treatment, including those who may previously have been told they could never have HRT.
