MammaCare BSE Instructor Certification
The MammaCare Breast Self-Examination (BSE) Instructor Course is available to women’s health care professionals who want to offer BSE workshops in their communities. The nine-hour, skill-based course is divided into two modules: pre-training (self-study) and one-on-one video conference training with the Certified MammaCare instructor.
The pre-training module contains a combination of online instructional and practical examination sessions. Trainees learn the scientifically validated components of the MammaCare Method of Breast Examination, practice palpating tactually accurate breast models, complete relevant breast health tutorials and quizzes, review the “MammaCare BSE Workshop Presentation” video, and prepare to present the workshop PowerPoint presentation to the Certified MammaCare Instructor.
One-on-one training sessions are conducted via video conference with the instructor. Trainees demonstrate examination skills and present the “MammaCare BSE Workshop” community PowerPoint.
