Breast cancer treatment is highly complex, incorporating all modern day treatment options, thus many different professions are involved in this pathway. However it is widely known that the patients’ care and service pathway associated with breast cancer through early detection, diagnostic procedures and treatments to the follow- up phase is still discontinuous. Cancer detection, diagnosis and care coordination comprise timely and appropriate care, provided by interprofessional team including medical, nursing and allied health professionals.
There is a need for this kind of education both at the basic education level of health care professionals involved, in-house training of cancer clinics and learning materials for independent continuous professional development (CPD).
An online learning package, which is Ebreast II project`s main goal, is a great resource to resolve the issue at some level.
Ebreast II is a 3- year (09.2020-08.2023) international project including full partners from Estonia, Finland and Norway and it is funded by Erasmus+ programme.
