Up to 85% of women with breast cancer do not have a family history of the disease, yet traditional screening models and guidelines rely mainly on family history and age.
This course will help you improve the preventative care you offer to at-risk women without a family history – i.e, the majority of women who develop breast cancer.
BONUS OFFER: The first 150 general practitioners to register for the course will be sent three complimentary breast screening tests to use for your patients (valued at $1,050).
Become familiar with the learning outcomes of the Telehealth Mastery Short Course – How to be more proactive in the breast health of your patients: genetic testing for breast cancer and complete a predisposing questionnaire to test your knowledge.
In this module, you will hear from the National Breast Cancer Foundation and their insights into genetic testing and other relevant information for GPs.
In the final module, you will learn how to implement genetic testing into your practice including the delivery methods via telehealth or in-clinic.
This education is a CPD Accredited Activity under the RACGP CPD Program and ACRRM PDP.
Telehealth Mastery Short Course — Combining genetic and clinical risk models for better proactive breast health
The GP is the gateway to preventative care. By enabling the GP to risk stratify their patient population with the most clinically applicable risk assessment models available, they will have greater insight to their patients’ risk of developing disease and therefore will be able to provide better screening and prevention recommendations to the patient. In the context of breast cancer risk assessment, our aim is to build on traditional family history assessment to show why it is as important to assess women that do not have the family history risk of disease.
