Call to Action Online – October 30, 2020

Real-World Data in Breast Cancer Research

On October 19th, Dr. Christopher Booth of Queen’s University gave an exclusive presentation to LEAD grads on the limitations of real-world data (RWD), as well as many of the challenges and pitfalls surrounding its use. He discussed how RWD can provide important insights into the patient experience, answer questions surrounding access to care, quality of care, rare diseases, and other outcomes. Dr. Booth also stressed that while RWD is critically important, randomized clinical trials remain the ‘gold standard’ in establishing the efficacy of various treatments and standards of care. The two types of evidence should, ideally, be taken as complementary.

The session was moderated by NBCC advocate Tracy Solak and the presentation was followed by a lively Q&A with LEAD grads in attendance. Thank you to all who participated!

Action Doesn’t Stop After October

A pink ribbon has never saved a life, but meaningful action has.

Thank you to all the advocates who took action throughout October – Whether it was telling their member of Congress to co-sponsor the Metastatic Breast Cancer Access to Care Act, writing a letter to the editor of their local paper, or learning more about issues facing the breast cancer community – we appreciate you.

We also appreciate your sharing our “Stop the Clock” campaign across social media platforms because Every 13 minutes, a woman dies of breast cancer. Learn more about ways you can help us end breast cancer once and for all at
