Thank you to the MammaCare Organization
for their recent endorsement of HR 3679 The National Nurse Act of 2011
. The MammaCare Organization
recommendations remain the most published and best practice standard for manual breast examination.
Re: National Nurse Act of 2011 HR 3679
"I feel compelled to write this letter in support of HR 3679
because its passage advances the role of nurses, the most benevolent and effective public heath resource in America.
America’s nurses have become the primary practitioners of skilled, competent, clinical breast examinations. MammaCare
research and training provided the national quality standards that needed to be adopted. Nurses have taken the time to learn and practice them.
The National Nurse Act
is a brilliant and practical step in publicly acknowledging America’s nurses as the nations most available and dedicated health-care resource. This act gives life, substance, and a trusted human face to our emergent national health-care system
Our work at MammaCare
provides compelling evidence of the commitment by corps of nurses who, with little regard for gain or profit, deliver competent heath care to millions of our citizens. MammaCare
can testify that every day literally thousands of US women receive proficient clinical breast examinations (CBE's) performed by trained hands belonging to RN's."
That’s real reform!
