Free Online Courses for Early Onset Breast Cancer
One in 10 new breast cancer diagnoses is a woman under the age of 45. With our input, ACOG and the CDC have developed a free, CME-accredited course series called “Understanding Early Onset Breast Cancer” (EOBC). The courses will help clinicians identify and manage the unique risks faced by young women.
As routine preventive health care services are starting to resume through telehealth and in-person appointments, the new online courses will help clinicians:
- Identify various risk factors for EOBC and how strong of a predictor each risk factor is
- Identify current guidelines and recommendations for EOBC and distinguish points of differentiation
- Identify existing data, including gaps, about breast density and EOBC risk
- Acquire effective risk assessment tools, communication tools and techniques to employ in patient interactions
- Interpret trends in data and identify ways to mitigate the impact of health disparities in EOBC
As a Physician Assistant, we encourage you to take these courses. You can register here: acog.org/eobc.
