Dear Colleague,

Welcome to the seventh edition of our HER2-Positive Breast Cancer Updates newsletter.

Today I’d like to invite you to focus on chapter 7 of our roundtable discussion video. This section focuses on the role of the nurse navigator and the importance of survivorship care. If you haven’t watched the full video, I encourage you to do so, as I think you’ll find it to be a valuable learning experience.

I’d also like to share some articles on such important topics as the fact that women treated for DCIS live longer than women with no history of DCIS, the assertion that breast density surpasses other risk factors in the development of breast cancer, and the association of osteopontin with specific prognostic factors and survival.

Please share this newsletter with your colleagues, and don’t hesitate to get in touch with me with your comments or suggestions through the editors of the Journal of the Advanced Practitioner in Oncology, or JADPRO, at at any time.
