Thursday Lunch Symposium: Dense Breast Tissue, Cancer Risk, and Mammography: What Healthcare Providers Need to Know
20th Annual NPWH Premier Women's Healthcare Conference
1.5 CE (NCC Code 1)
Many states require that patients be notified if their mammograms indicate dense breast tissue. This case-based symposium will help nurse practitioners and other healthcare providers counsel those patients. It will also better enable healthcare providers to assess these findings in terms of each patient’s individual risk factors. The faculty will provide education about screening technologies and their appropriateness for individual patients and will also review strategies for optimum follow up for at-risk patients.
