A FUNNY THING HAPPENED ON THE WAY TO THE FORTUNE OR LESSONS LEARNED DURING THE 25 YEARS OF TRYING TO TRANSFER A BEHAVIORAL TECHNOLOGY. H.S. Pennypacker

Dr. Hank Pennypacker shares his 25-year journey, transferring a behavioral technology. MammaCare is the recognized medical and scientific standard for performing and teaching proficient manual breast examination.

The National Cancer Institute supported development of MammaCare to identify and optimize the tactile skills needed to detect and distinguish suspicious lesions from normal nodular breast tissue. The resulting body of research demonstrated that tactually accurate breast models and evidence-based training significantly improve examination sensitivity, specificity and breast tissue coverage.
