Information for Patients

How to become involved in the registry

If you are a patient who would like to become involved in the Australian Breast Device Registry (ABDR), you may speak to your surgeon and enquire as to whether or not they are contributing to the registry.  If your surgeon is contributing, you will automatically be included.

Your surgeon will discuss the ABDR with you prior to surgery and provide you with a copy of the ABDR Patient Leaflet.  After surgery you will receive a more detailed Patient Explanatory Statement in the post. If you would like to receive a copy of this statement prior to deciding to participate in the registry or would like to receive this by email, please contact the ABDR Coordinator on (03) 9903 0205

For more information about what participation involves and patient Q&As.
