Launched! “In the Know with DenseBreast-info” Quiz Series!
In collaboration with OBG Management magazine, we are delighted to announce the launch of an interactive quiz series, In the Know with DenseBreast-info (press announcement here).
Each month’s quiz will address a knowledge gap identified through the DB-i research study, Effect of an educational intervention on women’s healthcare provider knowledge gaps about breast density, breast cancer risk, and screening. The study identified important knowledge gaps about implications of breast density among women’s healthcare referring providers and showed that these deficiencies can be effectively addressed with web-based education.
Please share these monthly quizzes within your networks!
DB-i Medical Advisory Board member Dr. Paula Gordon authored a new editorial in the Canadian Association of Radiologists Journal, Breast Density and Risk of Interval Cancers. She describes the “natural experiment” created by the patchwork of breast cancer screening policies across Canadian provinces and territories. Most jurisdictions screen only biennially, but a minority do screen annually if the woman has dense breasts. This study demonstrated reduced interval cancers in jurisdictions that do so.
