In May 2020, the National Breast Imaging Academy (NBIA), in partnership with Health Education England e-Learning for Healthcare (e-LfH), launched their e-learning programme for radiographers, radiologists and breast clinicians. This is the third monthly update about the programme.

e-Learning sessions are part of the NBIA’s aim to provide online learning to complement face-to-face clinical training. The sessions are designed to support trainees in breast imaging and to provide valuable continuing professional development (CPD) resources for all qualified staff.

The full programme of e-learning sessions is due to launch in Autumn 2020, but many sessions are available now, to support your training needs during the COVID-19 pandemic.

What’s new in July 2020?

There are now 64 e-learning sessions available on the e-LfH Hub.

New sessions added recently include:

  • Ultrasound Interpretation – Cysts and Collections
  • Clinical Evaluation and Management of Male Breast Disease
  • Epidemiology of Breast Cancer
  • Other Malignant Breast Disease

Additional sessions will be added to the e-learning catalogue as soon as they are ready.

What can I expect from the e-learning sessions?

The interactive e-learning sessions cover a wide range of topics on breast imaging and relevant aspects of surgery, oncology, pathology, nursing, and risk and prevention.

In addition to the recently added e-learning sessions listed above, you can also access:

  • Assessment for Mammographers
  • Advanced Ultrasound Techniques 1 Elastography
  • Challenging Scenarios in Breast Screening
  • Clinical Breast Evaluation Series
  • ‘Day in the Life’ series showcasing breast multidisciplinary team members
  • Image Evaluation
  • Interpreting Contrast-enhanced Spectral Mammography
  • Living With, Through and Beyond Breast Cancer
  • MRI Artefacts
  • QA, Standards and Guidance
  • Tips for Reading Screening Mammograms

What is the NBIA?

Hosted by Manchester University NHS Foundation Trust, the National Breast Imaging Academy (NBIA) project is a collaborative, national, multidisciplinary initiative, involving training centres and NHS Trusts around the country as well as Health Education England, Public Health England, the Royal College of Radiologists, the Society and College of Radiographers, the Association of Breast Clinicians and e-Learning for Healthcare.
