CDH1 is included in gene panel for breast cancer but, given lower penetrance in unselected carriers, what do we do when CDH1 variants are found in pts w/o concerning personal/family cancer history? Pre-test counselling critical for discussing uncertainty

We often compare pts w/ cCR undergoing W&W to pts w/ pCR @ surgery but concordance b/w cCR & pCR modest: 🍎 to 🍊 Impt work by will extend OnCoRe to include pts w/cCR having surgery to allow 4 more meaningful comparisons

This is an issue in 🇨🇦 as well - high tuition compounded by costs of exams, applications, interview travel, etc that continue to accrue into residency. This fuels disparities in access to education and ultimately access to care in many communities

RR, OR, or HR are useful for understanding prognostic factors across a wide range of patients. When helping patients in planning their care/future, however, absolute risks become necessary. This is challenging when we don't know the baseline risk.

💯 I don’t think it’s a coincidence that these are the lowest paid specialties, nor are women (or anybody for that matter) consciously choosing to practice in the least remunerative areas

2/2 Even within specialties, differences remain - the magnitude of which can be seen in the matched analysis. To deal with the disparity we need to consider BOTH 1) why women are clustering in the lower paid specialties and 2) why differences exist within specialties
