Nurses Light the Path: Empowering Patients to Improve Breast Cancer Screening and Clinical Trial Representation

Access Activity

Overview / Abstract:

Target Audience
The primary target audience for this activity is Oncology Nursing Professionals (APRN, NP, RN).

Program Overview
For women with breast cancer and those at risk, disparities in screening and clinical-trial enrollment exist, particularly among racial and ethnic minority populations. Awareness of these disparities can ensure timely screening practices and help address patient fears and concerns regarding clinical trials that inhibit diverse representation in research. Younger women should be educated on their higher risk for aggressive breast cancer subtypes and empowered to get regular screenings that can aid early detection. Join an expert panel as they discuss how to reduce disparities and increase equity in clinical trial enrollment. Panelists will also highlight the importance of regular screening for breast cancer and share strategies to provide patients with support, education, and resources to make informed decisions on these topics.

Learning Objectives
Demonstrate appropriate screening practices for women at risk of breast cancer
Describe strategies to address disparities in clinical trial enrollment
Provide patients with support, education, and resources to make informed decisions regarding screening and clinical trial enrollment
