Friday, February 14, 2014
Hereditary Breast and Ovarian Cancer: Is Your Patient at High-Risk
is a case-based CME activity designed to improve primary care
providers' ability to identify, evaluate, and manage patients at-risk
for hereditary breast ovarian cancer.
The free web-based training is available online
until October 19, 2016, and was developed by collaborators from the
Michigan Department of Community Health, Georgia and Oregon Departments
of Health, National Coalition of Health Professional Education in
Genetics (now Jackson Labs), and the Division of Cancer Prevention and
Control at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. In addition
to case studies, the program includes links to a number of helpful
hereditary breast ovarian cancer risk assessment tools and resources.
Physicians can earn up to 2 Category 1 CME credits, free of charge. CME
is administered through Michigan State University.
