Course content

Please note: this programme is only available to home/EU students.

Breast cancer care, diagnosis and treatment exist in a changing professional environment that requires practitioners to continually update and review clinical practice. If you are a registered healthcare practitioner working in the field of breast evaluation, this course is relevant to you.

This interprofessional programme enables participants to gain competence in the multi-skilled practice of breast evaluation. Shared learning for different healthcare disciplines is facilitated through a range of modules provided by collaborative partners at the Jarvis National Breast Screening Training Centre, Guildford, and at the South West London National Breast Screening Training Centre at St George's. By developing your multidisciplinary approach to the diagnosis, care and management of breast disease, this programme enables the enhancement of service provision to the client requesting or requiring breast evaluation.

You may be granted credits for your previous academic and professional qualification through Accreditation of Prior Experiential Learning (APEL) scheme. An independent work-based learning module enables you to study around your individual CPD and workplace needs.


What will you study

You will study modules relating to breast cancer diagnosis, treatment and care, research methods and ethics as well as independent work-based learning topics to meet your personal and clinical needs.

Some of the modules are developed in partnership with the Jarvis and St George's Breast Screening Centres.
