Breast Cancer Self-Study Modules
CDC teamed with Medscape from WebMD to develop online self-study modules called Follow Up of Abnormal Clinical and Imaging Findings of the Breast: Five Self-Study Modules for Primary Care Clinicians. The five self-directed, interactive training modules are designed to educate clinicians on providing appropriate and timely care to women with early signs of breast cancer, and to train physicians on the latest evidence, protocols, and guidelines around detecting breast cancer. They will help health professionals better understand different approaches to early breast cancer detection.
These modules were developed by CDC's Division of Cancer Prevention and Control (DCPC), endorsed by the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, and acknowledged by the United States Food and Drug Administration. The modules were edited by Medscape.
The curriculum, available to registered Medscape members, consists of these modules
- Breast Anatomy, Physiology, and Pathology,
- Health History and Clinical Breast Examination,
- Workup of Abnormal Clinical Findings,
- Follow up of Abnormal Imaging Findings: Biopsy Methods, and
- Risk Management.
