- The second King's Fund Forum, was held between 1-3 October 1986. A panel of twelve listened to evidence from experts in public sessions. After closed sessions, the panel discussed its report with the audience and an agreed consensus statement was then presented at a press conference. The four questions addressed were: (1) When a woman is first suspected of having breast cancer, what information is required by the doctor and the patient in order to plan management? (2a) What are the best forms of initial local treatment? (2b) What are the best forms of systemic treatment? (3) What are the pros and cons of different degrees of involvement in women in deciding about their own treatment? and, (4) How should services for treating breast cancer be organised to maximise benefits and minimise disadvantages?
