The eLearning module teaches healthcare providers about the experiences of women with disabilities’ accessing breast cancer screening.  The module contains tips and real life scenarios to help healthcare providers communicate appropriately and comfortably interact with women with disabilities.  The scenarios in the module are based on stories told by real women coming for cancer screening.

The module begins with general information on working with women with disabilities.  Next, the participants work through four clinical vignettes involving interactions with women with disabilities.  Based on their responses, the participants are provided with feedback and a rationale about which response is optimal given the circumstance. 

The eLearning module takes approximately 1 hour to complete.
