Joyeuses Fêtes de la part du comité ACE : inspiré par la collectivité arthritique depuis 2000

ACE Holiday Slide Image FrenchL’année 2015 a été une année pleine de défis, de prise en charge et de changements. Et le comité ACE (Arthritis Consumer Experts) s’est tenu fidèlement à vos côtés pendant tous ces bouleversements, représentant la voix des patients-consommateurs et luttant pour les droits des Canadiennes et Canadiens atteints de toutes formes d’arthrite.

Pour moi, l’année 2015 a également marqué un point tournant : je peux affirmer maintenant avoir vécu plus de la moitié de ma vie avec la polyarthrite rhumatoïde. Mais où donc a filé tout ce temps ?

Join Cheryl Koehn in webinar on subsequent entry biologics

Canadian Breast Cancer Network Logo

 

Cheryl Koehn, President of Arthritis Consumer Experts, will be presenting in a free webinar on subsequent entry biologics today from 7pm-8pm EST. The webinar is hosted by the Canadian Breast Cancer Network and is the first webinar of 2015 on Subsequent Entry Biologics (SEBs) and how these drugs impact breast cancer treatment.

The network is hosting the webinar in anticipation of SEBs being introduced into breast cancer treatment in about five years when Herceptin comes off patent. Because SEBs have been part of the arthritis community for a number of years now, Cheryl Koehn will explain how the arthritis community has dealt with SEBs and what the Canadian Breast Cancer Network can expect once SEBs for breast cancer enter the marketplace.

Below are the learning outcomes of the webinar:

  • What are Subsequent Entry Biologics, or SEBs?
  • Why should you care about SEBs?
  • What breast cancer specific biologics will be affected?
  • How did the arthritis community prepare for their arrival into the marketplace?
  • What can you do to stay abreast of SEB developments in breast cancer?
