In 2002, I started work as Project Manager on the Sloane Project, an audit of screen-detected non-invasive carcinoma – including Ductal Carcinoma In Situ (DCIS) and Lobular Carcinoma In Situ (LCIS) – and atypical hyperplasia of the breast.
Since 2002, Karen has been project manager of the Sloane Project since 2002, which now part of the Screening QA Service. She also manages other breast cancer audits including the West Midlands DCIS Study and Forget Me Not Study. She hopes that these audits and research will help improve the understanding of breast cancer and how it evolves, and aid patients and healthcare professionals in making more informed choices regarding treatment in the future. Karen enjoys spending her spare time with her children, family and friends, walking her retired greyhound and running.
