GUIDELINES

The ABC guidelines are based on the most up-to-date evidence and can be used and adapted to guide treatment decisions in many different healthcare settings globally. They are updated at each biennial Advanced Breast Cancer International Consensus Conference, which has established itself as a major international breast cancer conference with the primary aim of developing international consensus guidelines for the management of ABC.

The ABC Consensus Conference's primary goal is the development of international consensus guidelines for the management of advanced breast cancer patients. These guidelines are based on the most up-to-date evidence and can be used to guide treatment decision-making in many different healthcare settings globally, with the necessary adaptations due to different access to care. Throughout the years, these guidelines have been endorsed by several international and European oncology organisations, such as EUSOMA (European Society of Breast Cancer Specialists), ESTRO (European Society of Radiation Oncology), ESGO (European Society of Gynaecological Oncology), UICC (Union International Contre le Cancer), SIS (Senologic International Society), ISS (International School of Senology), FLAM (Federación Latino-Americana de Mastología), OECI (Organisation of European Cancer Institutes), Susan G. Komen and BCRF (Breast Cancer Research Foundation), and have official representation from ASCO. Several organisations around the world have been adapting these guidelines to their country specific environment, particularly in terms of accessibility.

Brain metastases in breast cancer

Considering that nearly one in three individuals with metastatic breast cancer may face brain metastases, our collaboration with Seagen has led to the creation of an informative video about brain metastases. This resource offers valuable insights into how these metastases develop, how to recognize them, and when it's essential to seek guidance from your healthcare providers.

hard-to-reach abc/mbc communities toolkit

To address the critical unmet need in access to care for hard-to-reach populations with advanced/ metastatic breast cancer (ABC/MBC), the ABC Global Alliance and Pfizer have collaborated to develop a toolkit of relevant, community-based initiatives and best practice summary documents that aims to drive collaboration across the global ABC/MBC community.

‘count us, know us, join us’ and ‘here & now’ campaigns

Novartis has partnered with organisations around the world to raise awareness of the needs and experiences of people living with advanced breast cancer and to provide disease information to patients and caregivers. One major initiative has been the global "Count Us, Know Us, Join Us" campaign that recognises and supports those living with ABC, as well as their caregivers, supporters, friends, and family members and helps to give them a stronger voice to meet their needs.

The Count Us, Know Us, Join Us survey confirmed that women with ABC feel isolated from the "pink" breast cancer movement that tends to focus on prevention and survivorship, and want to be better understood.

The sister pan-European initiative, "Here & Now" aims to raise awareness of ABC and the realities of living with the disease. Here & Now has uncovered insights into the impact of ABC to understand how barriers to optimal patient care can be overcome in order to improve the level of care and support across Europe.
