Course summary

Why choose this course?

Breast cancer care, diagnosis and treatment exist in a changing professional environment that requires practitioners to continually update and review clinical practice. If you are a registered healthcare practitioner working in the field of breast evaluation, this course is relevant to you. This interprofessional programme enables participants to gain competence in the multi-skilled practice of breast evaluation. Shared learning for different healthcare disciplines is facilitated through a range of modules provided by collaborative partners at the Jarvis National Breast Screening Training Centre, Guildford, and at the South West London National Breast Screening Training Centre at St George's. By developing your multidisciplinary approach to the diagnosis, care and management of breast disease, this programme enables the enhancement of service provision to the client requesting or requiring breast evaluation. You may be granted credits for your previous academic and professional qualification through Accreditation of Prior Experiential Learning (APEL) scheme. An independent work-based learning module enables you to study around your individual CPD and workplace needs.

What you will study

You will study modules relating to breast cancer diagnosis, treatment and care, research methods and ethics as well as independent work-based learning topics to meet your personal and clinical needs. Some of the modules are developed in partnership with the Jarvis and St George's Breast Screening Centres.

Teaching and assessment

This flexible course is one route in our postgraduate radiography programme, which allows you to focus on your own area of interest. As well as developing your understanding of your specialist area, this course will make sure you: keep up to date with recent developments, legal requirements and ethically-sound practice; reflect critically on your practice; develop your judgement and decision-making skills; improve your networking skills; and gain skills in managing others.
