The Certified MammaCare Clinical Breast Examiner Course is available to women’s healthcare professionals worldwide, at training centers in the United States and Germany. The Clinical Breast Examiner Course is a two-day training program that is conducted with one or two trainees.
The MammaCare Method of Clinical Breast Examination provides the tactile training needed to enhance sensitivity of the clinician’s fingers. MammaCare-trained fingers have discovered breast lesions as small as 3mm.
The MammaCare Method involves a palpation and search procedure that is designed to ensure contact of the trained fingers with every cubic millimeter of breast tissue. Breast tissue coverage is documented by observing and recording examination performance using the MammaCare Proficiency Evaluation Lamp.
Trainees begin the program online and acquire baseline palpation skills using the Professional Learning System in preparation for their arrival at the training site. Trainees learn standardized breast examination skills, first on tactually accurate MammaCare breast models and then on surrogate patients. Trainees develop the skill to detect small simulated lesions accurately and reliably, to reject false positives and meet performance standards measured on live breast tissue and a standardized series of tactually accurate breast models.
