Breast cancer is the most common non-cutaneous cancer in women, and the leading cause of cancer death in women age 40–65. Missed, delayed or wrong diagnosis of breast cancer is a leading cause of malpractice claims, especially in young women. This talk, titled “Breast Care Risk Assessment Among Women 40–49 in Primary Care,” was presented in June 2019 as part of a patient safety grant program sponsored by CRICO/Risk Management Foundation of the Harvard Medical Institutions.

Our presenter is Dr. Mara Schonberg, an Associate Professor of Medicine at Harvard Medical School, a practicing internist, and Director of Research in Shared Decision Making in the Division of General Medicine at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston.
