Education and training in early detection of breast cancer for health care professionals
Date du début: 1 sept. 2015, Date de fin: 31 août 2018 PROJET  TERMINÉ 

Background: Breast cancer detection should be carried out by a team involving a number of health professionals from various medical, nursing and allied health disciplines. Students from different health disciplines often have little idea of what each other’s roles entail. Interprofessional learning increase this knowledge, as well as giving students an understanding of the interpersonal skills needed for liaison and communication. Aim: to study and develop interprofessional eLearning about breast cancer detection for health care staff. Intellectual outputs of the project are O1: Study about mammography education and clinical practice in Europe dedicated to breast cancer screening and diagnostic, O2: Multimedia educational package about early BC detection and diagnostic procedures among nurses, radiographers and biomedical laboratory scientists and lecturers in the field, O3: Multimedia educational package on breast screening, imaging and quality assurance competences for radiographers and O4: Open and closed multimedia educational package on further examination (FE) and new breast imaging modalities competence for radiographers and biomedical laboratory scientists. Also Intensive program in interprofessional eLearning in early detection of breast cancer for health care lecturers and staff (C1) will be organized. Methods: In order to fulfill objective 1 related intellectual output 1, the methodology of systematic literature reviews and surveys with questionnaires are used. The e-learning packages (O2-O4) are developed in the evidence-based way, i.e. at the first phase the best available knowledge (regulation documents, literature review, research results, expert knowledge, best practices + user views) are being surveyed. Evidence-base method serves also as pedagogial principle in line with eLearning pedagogics.In the basis of this best available knowledge core competences, contents, learning outcomes and materials are deceloped. Asyncronous and syncronous forms of eLearning are used in in the open access platform there educational packages are constructed in. Target groups: Health care staff working in breast cancer detection service chain primarily in European countries but open access eLearning makes the education also available to health care staff all over the world, so tenths of thousands of members of health care staff can study asyncronous version of the course. However also version where communication with lecturer is possible will be prepared. For these courses students have access via institutions taking part this project since they need lecturer work hours and presence. Approximate number taking part these courses per year is about 70. There will be about 70 participants in the intensive course. Impact: Increased competences of health care professionals as well as better diagnostic image quality and better radiation safety. More understanding about educational systems in the area in the area of breast screening. More understanding about each others professional work in breast cancer care and diagnostics for the benefit of the patient in the participating countries. Project will improve co-operation between different professional groups in breast cancer patient’s prediagnostic process. This will result better services for women entering breast cancer diagnostic process at local, regional and international level. Since education is put into open access platform available internationally this affects into harmonizing health care staff interprofessional work in this service chain. Improved health care staff patient guidance competences about early BC detection and diagnostic procedures will improve seamless care and services of this vulnerable patient group. This helps right timing and focusing of care and services. Better competences in this area also impacts to the quality of diagnosis.
