    • Abstract:
      We surveyed 80 physicians from four specialties (Family Medicine. General Medicine. General Surgery. Ob-Gyn) to investigate how they taught breast self-examination (BSE). Only half reported personally leaching BSE. Few MDs reported routinely using techniques to assess BSE competency. Most (72 per cent) claimed no formal training in teaching BSE: 10 per cent claimed no training at all. Techniques used to teach BSE may vary. and physicians may lack the training to teach BSE. (Am J Public Health 1985: 75:673-675.) [ABSTRACT FROM AUTHOR]
