Metastatic Breast Cancer Coordinated Treatment

When breast cancer spreads to the brain, patients now have access to a coordinated care team at the University of Michigan Rogel Cancer Center.

The Improve Metastatic Breast Cancer Patient Access to Coordinated Treatment (IMPACT) Team is a collaboration of brain cancer and breast cancer physicians, nurse practitioners and nurses. Metastatic breast cancer patients also have access to genetic testing and counseling, rehabilitation medicine, neuropsychology, and palliative care.

Our goal is to Improve Metastatic breast cancer Patient Access to Coordinated Treatment that is personalized for your needs through our IMPACT the Brain program.
