Breast Density: Why It Matters

Not only has breast density long been known to mask breast cancer on mammography, but breast density is an independent risk factor for the development of breast cancer. To date more than half of U.S. states require women to be provided some level of notification about breast density after their mammograms. The increasing awareness about the importance of breast density is necessitating new conversations between patients and their healthcare providers. This course will educate healthcare professionals about breast density, its associated risks, as well as indications and use of supplemental screening with ultrasound, MRI, and discussion of nuclear medicine methods.

Introduction to Research

This course is an introduction to research for allied health professionals. It explains why research is important in allied health and details different types of research. It provides a basic understanding of research principles, designs and processes, enabling the beginning researcher to design a simple research study from start to finish, and apply the results to improving clinical practice.

After course completion, health professionals should be able to focus their research, whether of a quantitative or qualitative type, develop a hypothesis or aim statement, perform a literature review, and design data collection and data analysis strategies for the specific types of research studies. Ethical concerns in research and the use of research ethics boards will be discussed. Health professionals will learn how to compile results from acquired research data sets and derive conclusions. Dissemination techniques, such as how to write up research, for scientific journal publication, conference presentation, or in poster format, will also be reviewed. Financial support is an integral component of research; approaches to funding will also be included in the course.
