Since its foundation in 1986, as a non-profit society, EUSOMA has identified that diagnosis and treatment of breast disease, and in particular breast cancer, are managed in widely different ways across Europe.
EUSOMA aims to:
- Promote scientific research and increase contacts between scientists and health care professionals involved in breast cancer care
- Improve and harmonize the level of patient care throughout Europe by identifying the most suitable diagnostic and treatment procedures and promoting their use, making available for all women in Europe a high quality specialist breast service, defining the standards for such a service and contributing to the process of certification and audit of Breast Centres.
- Bring these to the attention of the appropriate Authorities
- Foster training and post-graduate programmes in breast disease at National and International levels
