Breast Density Notification: Educating Primary Care Providers for Better Healthcare Delivery

University of Michigan via Canvas Network

Overview

Michigan is the 21st state to enact breast density notification legislation. Effective June 1, 2015 Michigan law requires that mammography service providers inform patients if they have "dense breast tissue" on screening mammography. Patients are urged to discuss their screening options with their primary care provider. As a consequence, primary care physicians, physician assistants, and advanced practice nurses must be well-versed in breast cancer screening, risk stratification, and options for supplemental screening when needed.

This course will help primary care providers, physician assistants, and advance practice nurses understand the new law and how to properly risk stratify and counsel women with dense breasts on mammography.

We will cover the following topics relating to Breast Density:

    Breast Density of Mammography
    Supplemental Breast Cancer Screening
    Recommendations for Patients with Dense Breasts on Mammography
    Screening Mammography: Agreement Over Screening
    Controversies in Screening
    Negative Consequences of Screening

Taught by

Renee W. Pinsky, Caren M. Stalburg and Cheryl T. Lee
