Nadeem Qureshi, SPCR funded researcher at the University of Nottingham's School of Medicine, will address the joint Meeting of the All-Party Parliamentary Groups (APPG) on Breast and Ovarian Cancer on 28 January.

Breast and ovarian cancer address in house of commons

Professor Qureshi will draw on his current research on familial breast cancer and focus on the challenges of identifying patients with a family history of breast and ovarian cancer. He will discuss topics ranging from what is meant by a family history of breast or ovarian cancer and the accurate identification and referral of patients by GPs. Questions will be taken from MPs and Lords and then from women with breast or ovarian cancer, related charities, clinicians and nurses.

The meeting aims to raise awareness of issues relating to services for people with familial breast and/or ovarian cancer, exploring the barriers which already exist within the NHS. It will also consider new challenges that are presented by the updated familial breast cancer guideline released in June 2013.
