National Accreditation Standards (NAS) Training Resources

A collection of resources has been developed to support staff working in breast screening when preparing for accreditation.

E-learning Modules 

The six modules below are suitable for staff ranging from administrative, to clinical and executive roles in Screening and Assessment Services (SASs) and the State Coordination Unit (SCU), as well as members of Discipline Quality and Leadership Groups, the State Quality Committee and the Accreditation Review Group.
