Breast Awareness Training

Monday, 18 June, 2012 - 16:48

Did you know Breast Cancer Care delivers a range of breast awareness training for healthcare professionals and community workers/volunteers?

Every year the Breast Health Promotion team train over 250 people on one of our specialist courses. The courses are developed and delivered by Breast Cancer Care’s Breast Health Promotion team, a specialist team of trainers with a wealth of experience in learning and development, working with disadvantaged groups and cascading the breast awareness message. 

Each course is aimed at giving trainees the skills, knowledge and confidence to speak to men and women about breast awareness either on a one to one or group setting and modules within the training cover everything from the perception of breasts to barriers people may have to the message.

Trainees on the courses come from a range of backgrounds and include, GP’s, Community Champions, Breast Care Nurses and Screening Managers. We have also trained key staff from charities such as Macmillan and Cancer Research UK.

‘An excellent course… I particularly enjoyed the practical sessions when we split into groups; learning from people from different areas of practice. I felt I have learnt so much on this course and will recommend to other colleagues.’

Courses are run throughout the year and throughout the UK. For information on all of our courses and our new OCN accredited course see our breast awareness training page.
