Enrollment is now underway for the latest in a series of cutting-edge courses designed to address the urgent need for managing chronic illnesses in communities
WOBURN, Mass. June 12, 2020 — CHWTraining is adding a new, community-focused breast cancer screening course to its 2020 portfolio. The cutting-edge online course, created by cancer prevention experts at the national and state level, is one of several that fill the industry’s skills gap by providing training in key areas such as breast cancer screening, cancer prevention, women’s health, communication skills, outreach and more.
“Breast cancer screenings can save lives, and CHWTraining is leading the way toward mobilizing women to get annual mammograms,” says Monique Cuvelier, Executive Director of CHWTraining Subscriptions. “Women face many barriers to accessing clinical screenings, and community-focused health teams are vital to educating and supporting women to overcome those hurdles.”
CHWTraining’s education and training cater to community-facing teams by addressing chronic conditions including the following, among others:
Breast Cancer Screening: communicate to clients the importance of screening, who should be screened, and what to expect.
Breast Cancer Genetics: understand how and why breast cancer happens and how to support women through a diagnosis.
Cervical Cancer: evaluate the major barriers to cervical cancer screening, plus how and when to encourage boys, girls, and women to be screened and vaccinated for HPV.
Diabetes: develop an understanding of the types of diabetes and how to manage them, including motivating clients to change lifestyle habits.
Asthma: discover how to reduce triggers during home visits and understand and follow asthma action plans.
COPD: acquire the skills needed to help clients through this group of lung conditions including chronic bronchitis and pulmonary emphysema.
