Description

Women understandably fear breast cancer. Breast cancer can also occur in men, although the diagnosis is most frequently associated with women. Most people know someone who has been affected by a diagnosis of breast cancer. Great strides have been made in the prevention, early detection, diagnosis, and treatment of breast cancer. An individualized approach to care that targets cell type, an individual’s profile/risk, genetic components, and the stage at diagnosis can result in different therapy options among patients.

Nurses play a key role informing patients on the advances, the importance of individualizing the approach to therapy, and offering support during each phase of the cancer diagnosis and care. With early detection and effective treatment, women who have been diagnosed with breast cancer can realistically expect to survive and live happy, productive lives. This course provides nurses with essential information about the epidemiology, risk factors, prevention and detection strategies, staging, and treatments for breast cancer in women.

Western Schools is accredited as a provider of continuing nursing education by the American Nurses Credentialing Center's Commission on Accreditation.
