  1. Fulltext. Breast self-examination for visually impaired women.

    Article - En anglais


    Regularly practiced breast self-examination (BSE) has been demonstrated to be an effective method in the early detection of breast abnormalities.

    Women are becoming increasingly aware of the importance of BSE as a means of self-health care and are seeking instruction on how to perform such examinations properly.

    Unfortunately, not all women have equal access to BSE instruction.

    This project addresses the need for BSE instruction specifically tailored to meet the needs of visually impaired women.

    A review of existing sources revealed that no formal methods of BSE instruction are being used to meet the needs of this population.
