ActioN Study Healthcare Provider Educational Curriculum
ActioN: Addressing Global inequalities in breast cancer genetic testing, counseling, and management among breast cancer patients in Nigeria
The objective of this course is to build capacity in clinicians to provide genetic counselling services to patients with breast cancer in Nigeria. The primary target for this course are health care practitioners including: general surgeons, breast surgical
oncologists, clinical oncologists, oncology nurses and breast radiologists engaging with breast cancer patients in Nigeria.
This program is part of the larger ActioN study, jointly run by the Princess Margaret Cancer Centre & Obafemi Awolowo University Teaching Hospital. The results of this study will improve outcomes for Nigerian patients, identify knowledge gaps for
providers and add to the growing body of literature on breast cancer patients globally, laying the foundation for breast cancer genetic testing as standard of care in Nigeria.
