PEI Breast Cancer Information Partnership

Upcoming:
Breast Reconstruction Awareness (BRA) Day is an annual event that provides credible, unbiased information about breast reconstruction after breast cancer.

On Wednesday, October 21st 2020, the Peter Gilgan Centre for Women’s Cancers at Women's College Hospital, in partnership with the Canadian Cancer Society and with generous support from the Canadian Society of Plastic Surgeons will be hosting a virtual event from 7 pm -10 pm EDT.
 
Even though we can’t gather in person this year, the key goals of this virtual BRA Day event haven’t changed:
·         Educate women on their breast reconstruction options
·         Provide access to an interactive community to empower women to make choices that are right for them
·         Connect women to one another as they take on their breast reconstruction journey
 
The event will feature presentations from national leading plastic surgeons, patient stories, educational breakout rooms, a virtual Show and Tell Lounge, and additional resources.  The full program to support the event is available here.

Since 1998, members of the Prince Edward Island Breast Cancer Information Partnership (PEIBCIP or the “Partnership”) have worked to ensure easy, accessible, reliable and up-to-date information about early detection, treatment and follow-up care is available to those affected by breast cancer on Prince Edward Island.

The Prince Edward Island Breast Cancer Information Partnership is comprised of volunteers representing various       organizations involved with breast cancer in Prince Edward Island.  Fifty percent of the Partnership’s members are breast cancer survivors.  The Partnership works to support all Islanders affected by breast cancer on Prince Edward Island, no matter their geographical location, cultural, age or educational circumstances, by providing easy access to timely, accurate and appropriate breast cancer information.

The Partnership also works to enhance the capacity of breast cancer stakeholders in Prince Edward Island to work together toward common goals.


The objectives of our work are:


  • To increase public support and professionals’ awareness of sources of support for breast cancer survivors.
  • To establish and maintain partnerships among representatives from key breast cancer organizations and institutions in Prince Edward Island, and, when appropriate, throughout the Atlantic Region.
  • To identify gaps or duplication in existing information or dissemination strategies.
  • To collaborate in developing new resources in response to the identified gaps.
  • To develop and maintain effective information dissemination strategies, particularly to newly diagnosed women and to people in underserved areas or groups.
