The breast care specialist coordinates information for the doctor the patient knows best. Topics address screening practice based on evidence that lives are saved, understanding of the overdiagnosis issues, communication via BI-RADS®, update on current best care approaches, and practical understanding of the breast care team members’ roles as a common basis for efficient and effective personalized care.
Breast care originates with the primary care professional. Specialists tell how they provide clear, continuing, collegial communication with these team members.
At the conclusion of this activity, participants should be able to:
- Apply results of breast care-imaging research to clinical practice.
- Apply principles of critical thinking to screening recommendations from experts and peers in the radiological sciences, and other members of the breast care team.
- Evaluate the results of breast imaging quality improvement measurements to improve patient care.
