Abstract: The aim of this study was to assess breast self-examination (BSE) practice in a representative sample of Greek midwives and midwifery students. Breast self-examination (BSE) is infrequent in healthcare professionals, including physicians and nurses. All midwives (n = 245) and graduating midwifery students (n = 165) who attended a congress of midwives were eligible for participation in the study. A self-administered, anonymous questionnaire was developed to assess BSE practice. Midwives performed BSE more frequently than students (p ent: BSE education should be included in the curricula of midwifery schools in order to increase BSE frequency, improve BSE accuracy and promote BSE teaching to patients.
