MammaCare’s new CBE Simulator–Trainer is a self-administered, palpation training platform that produces and validates breast examination competencies. The computer’s operating program is based on published quality-standard examination protocols. It is used to train clinicians and students who perform or will be performing clinical breast exams and by MammaCare Specialists to train and certify health care professionals.
The Trainer’s patented tactile sensor array builds essential CBE performance skills through a series of breast examination learning modules presented via computer. As fingers examine a series of tactually accurate breast models the operating program captures and monitors every aspect of examination performance on the computer.
The Trainer advances clinical sensitivity and specificity via progressively more complex breast models that are placed on its surface. A digital “clinical instructor” guides the learner through the training modules, assessing progress and providing corrective feedback. In operation, palpation of the breast models is detected by highly sensitive tactile transducers, received by digital signal processors, and interpreted by a software program that directs practice and performance.
The Trainer’s tactile transducers locate and register every palpation at 1024 levels of examination pressure in each square centimeter of breast tissue within 3mm of spatial resolution. Instructional software measures sensitivity and specificity of the trainee’s performance as it corrects and shapes palpation and search skills. The trainee meets performance standards in each module before advancing to the succeeding one.
The MammaCare CBE Simulator-Trainer is the only known technology that quantifies and validates acquisition of breast examination competencies acknowledged as standards for clinical breast examination performance.
