Abstract:
In the State of Georgia, health disparities exist for women who are indigent, rarely or never screened. Several counties in Northeast Georgia have overall poverty rates about 13%, Latino and African American populations where poverty rates are higher than other races, and counties where no mammography facilities or community hospitals exist. In an effort to reduce some of the disparities, the State of Georgia designed a Breast Cancer license plate which can be purchased for $25. $22 of the special fee for the license plate funds breast cancer screening and treatment services for Georgians in need. In 2006, fifteen $50,000 grants funded from the sale of the Breast Cancer license plates were awarded to various organizations. The Medical Center Foundation of Northeast Georgia Medical Center was awarded one of these grants entitled "Clinical Breast Exam Training". Nurses will be trained in CBE using MammaCare Training offered through the University of Florida. With this training, the nurses will be able to perform CBE at community screenings, offices, and clinics, teach CBE to nurses, students, and BSE to community groups. Increasing the number of BSE programs and CBE nurses in the region will help detect breast cancers at an earlier stage, improve access to quality care for women that are indigent, and rarely or never screened. 15 nurses will be selected to participate in the CBE Training Program. Nursing instructors, Lanier ONS members, and community- based nurses will be considered for training. Nurses will perform CBE at screenings, clinics, or offices, train nursing students or nurses to perform CBE, and/or teach community groups. A. Train nurses in CBE: 1. Number of CBE Specialists, 2. Number of nurses trained in CBE; B. Train future nurses to be CBE providers: 1. Number of CBE training programs, 2. Number of students trained in CBE; C. Provide CBE to indigent, rarely or never screened women: 1. Number of hours spent performing CBE in clinics/offices, 2. Number of community CBE screenings provided; D. Provide breast health and BSE education to community: 1. Number of BSE education events provided, 2. Number of women referred for screening mammography. Promoting the early detection of breast cancer, and empowering and educating women at high risk are very important roles for oncology nurses.
