New programme on breast cancer primary prevention education now available

Louise Garrahan, 8 June 2022
Breast cancer primary prevention education

Health Education England elearning for healthcare (HEE elfh) has worked with Health Innovation Manchester to develop a new Breast Cancer Primary Prevention Education elearning programme.

The resource – aimed at primary care staff including GPs, nurses, pharmacists, and allied health professionals – outlines the lifestyle and pharmacological interventions that can be used in the primary prevention of breast cancer for pre and postmenopausal women. It also covers the side effects of each drug and the guidelines to receive treatment.

The programme features 1 module, which takes approximately 20 minutes to complete.

At the end of the programme learners will be able to:

* list the strategies for lifestyle interventions for the prevention of breast cancer
* identify which drugs are used in the prevention of breast cancer for pre and post-menopausal women
* describe the potential side effects of each drug

Learners can access the session here.
