Dr. Angela Alexander posted this April 1st to her personal blog, “The Cancer Geek“,
which highlights a great point–Despite a consensus of standard treatment (multi-modality model), why aren’t all IBC patients treated in this manner? We must do more to educate health care professionals across the country.
This is a great explanation about how the general guidelines for treating IBC are not being followed by 100% of oncologists today!
We need to do more to educate oncologists that are not specialists in IBC in how to treat their IBC patients to get the best outcomes. Come on, a 70% 2-year survival trend! We can and should do better than that.
Dr. Alexander Thank you!
Also on a side note, we are honored that you volunteer with the IBC Network!
