Montevideo, Uruguay. Uruguayan Society of Mastology Joint Session

Dear SIS Members.

It is a pleasure to inform you about the SIS/ISS activity which was held in Montevideo, Uruguay, last August 30, 2011, with the Uruguayan Society of Mastology in a Joint session where the SIS/ISS Accreditation Program on Breast Cancer Centers/Units was discussed.

Dr. Carlos Garbino, SIS/ISS Secretary, presented the Program to the audience, who was compossed by representatives of most of the envolved specialties in Breast Cancer care.

A very active discussion took place when a comparison of the nacional resources and the SIS/ISS requirements were analyzed. Local dificulties, in different areas, could be identified considering the contents and sequences included in the Accreditation Program who could collaborate with possible local iniciatives to overcome them.
