Hereditary Breast Cancer Initiative Sees Progress

The FMEC and National Association of Chronic Disease Directors (NACDD) are collaborating on a quality improvement (QI) pilot project to engage family physicians in addressing hereditary breast cancer (HBC) and using narrative medicine and Bring Your Brave (BYB) resources in practice. Working with 7 family medicine residency training clinics, the FMEC is measuring changes in care. As of the project midpoint, 100% of the clinics have implemented screening tools, and most other project targets (documentation of discussion of results, documentation of offering of BYB materials, and referral for genetic counseling or testing) have been met or nearly met. The project will continue through July 2024. Watch the FMEC emails and website for more project reports as well as a 7-module CME series, Confidence In Hereditary Cancer Discussions, that will help you and your team improve screening, patient communication, and referral.
