The Certified MammaCare Clinical Breast Examiner Course is available to women's healthcare professionals worldwide, at training centers in the United States and Germany. The Clinical Breast Examiner Course is a two-day training program that is conducted with one or two trainees.
The MammaCare Method of Clinical Breast Examination provides the tactile training needed to enhance sensitivity of the clinician's fingers. MammaCare-trained fingers have discovered breast lesions as small as 3mm.
The MammaCare Method involves a palpation and search procedure that is designed to ensure contact of the trained fingers with every cubic millimeter of breast tissue. Breast tissue coverage is documented by observing and recording examination performance using the MammaCare Proficiency Evaluation Lamp.
The trainee learns standardized breast examination skills, first on tactually accurate MammaCare breast models and then on surrogate patients. Trainees develop the skill to detect small simulated lesions accurately and reliably, to reject false positives and meet performance standards measured on a standardized series of tactually accurate breast models and breast tissue.
The Florida Board of Nursing has approved the MammaCare Corporation to provide contact hours of continuing education for ARNPs, RNs, and NPs upon course completion. Hours are credited through CE broker and may also include recertification credit hours.
