  • Projects In Knowledge is pleased to present The Advanced Certificate Program: Breast Cancer Management comprised of Curricula I and II.

    Curriculum I courses present a basic overview of management strategies for optimal personalized care of breast cancer patients.
    Curriculum II presents more advanced courses that build on new scientific developments and the topics covered in Curriculum I.

    Featuring the very latest state-of-the-science information about breast cancer diagnosis, breast cancer treatment, and breast cancer disease management, this free online curriculum offers CME, CE, and CPE credit to oncologists and other clinicians who care for patients with breast cancer.

    The curriculum courses are updated continuously throughout the year.

    The Advanced Certificate Program: Breast Cancer Management is building a community of experts to help you provide your patients with the best treatment outcome possible.
  • Apply evidence-based guidelines to determine optimal treatment interventions for patients with or at risk for developing breast cancer through an understanding of the epidemiology, risk factors, and disease burden imposed by breast cancer, including genetic factors, dietary modification, morbidity, and mortality.
  • Assess the role of genetic and other markers in determining optimal treatment selection in breast cancer patients, and in evaluating treatment response to therapy to improve patient outcomes.
  • Evaluate the appropriate use of chemotherapy, hormone therapy, and targeted therapy agents in treatment strategies for breast cancer patients that improve outcomes through knowledge of their efficacy and safety.
  • Assess the challenges in promoting treatment compliance, including long-term compliance, and address the long-term consequences of treatment.
