We were very warmly received. We had an excellent conference room and delicious food provided by the hospital.
The core content for the course is the same wherever we teach it. However, the emphasis can vary depending on the nurses present. On this course, we have a less diverse cohort of nurses than we have had before and they all work in the public sector in specialised clinics. Having explained what the course would cover, we asked if there were other topics they would like us to discuss.

Whenever I teach, I learn more about this country and about the variable medical conditions. I am constantly humbled by the dedication of health professionals working in poorly resourced facilities. Listening to the stories of how many women are diagnosed with advanced breast cancer makes me realise how important it is to try and make a difference at the primary level. It makes me appreciate the excellent facilities I have become accustomed to.
As always, a huge thank you to our main sponsors: Netcare (especially CBMH ) and Care Cross. Our Breast Course for Nurses website is up and running. Please find out more about us on www.breastcourse4nurses.co.za
