This project was conducted in 3 phases. The 1st phase was to determine the level of knowledge on breast cancer and the uptake of any of the breast cancer screening program among UM staff. The 2nd phase was the intervention phase whereby seminars on breast cancer and workshops to train BSE were conducted in UM. At the same UM female staffs with breast abnormality were called for breast check up (CBE). The 3rd phase was the re-evaluation on their knowledge and measurement of the uptake of BSE after the interventions. The project resulted in presentation on the results in the phase 1 (2009) and was completed in July 2010. Articles on the results are in the process of submission.
