Breast Cancer Awareness Programme

Shauna Healy

Screening remains the best way we have of detecting breast cancer at an early stage when treatment can be more effective. The PHA have been working with the Health & Social Care Trusts to put measures in place to allow women to attend for screening, with strict COVID-19 safety precautions in place. We would encourage all those who are invited for screening to attend.

Funded by the PHA the Women’s Resource and Development Agency’s (WRDA) Breast Screening Awareness Programme highlights the importance of breast checking and breast screening in early diagnosis of breast cancer. It includes a practical demonstration on how to correctly check breasts and explains the signs and symptoms to look for.

WRDA is currently taking bookings for group sessions delivered on Zoom and the three webinars are also available on the WRDA website: https://wrda.net/breast-cervical-and-bowel-screening-awareness-programme/
