Abstract
Treatment guidelines recommend a more conservative surgical approach than mastectomy for early stage breast cancer and a stronger emphasis on adjuvant therapy. Registry data at South Australian teaching hospitals have been used to monitor survivals and treatment in relation to these guidelines. The aim was to use registry data to: (1) investigate trends in survival and treatment; and (2) compare treatment guidelines.
