Breast Care Management Algorithm: Contents

By Jock Hoffman, CRICO

Related to: Ambulatory, Clinical Guidelines, Diagnosis, Primary Care, Other Specialties

Work on the CRICO Breast Care Management Algorithm began in the early 1990s, when CRICO-insured primary care providers expressed concern over the frequency of malpractice claims alleging a failure to diagnose breast cancer. The first iteration was published in 1995, has since undergone five revisions, culminating in the most recent (2019) edition. CRICO is most grateful for the contributions the expert oncologists, breast surgeons, radiologists, obstetrician/gynecologists, and primary care physicians who have served on the Breast Care Task Force or as peer reviewers.

For questions about the CRICO Breast Care Management Algorithm (2019), contact CRICO Senior Editor Jock Hoffman.
