Breast Cancer Care promotes the importance of early detection and provides accurate answers to questions about breast health. Our Train the Trainer: Breast Health Promotion course is accredited by the Open College Network (OCN)

 The course is aimed at anyone who promotes health awareness in the community, including healthcare professionals, health promoters, community workers and volunteers, and gives participants the knowledge and skills to talk to groups and individuals about breast awareness and early detection.

 Topics covered include how to be breast aware, the breast screening programme, breast cancer risk and barriers to breast awareness. The training is interactive and trainees are given access to resources they can use post training.


Please find attached our cost guide for further details. The course can be taken at level 2 or level 3 and is worth 4 credits.  Assessment of accredited participants will take place post course over a 6 month period. A limited number of places are also available for participants who do not wish to be accredited.

Matt Cruice, Camden Cancer Screening Manager, says of the course:

I would recommend this course to anyone who is looking to promote breast awareness and breast screening. It is an exceptionally well constructed course that would benefit a range of participants, from volunteers through to general practitioners. Breast Cancer Care has developed something that provides health promoters with the tools to chip away at the existing barriers to breast awareness a little bit more effectively!"

 Please do not hesitate to forward this on.
