|Abstract:||Background The EUSOMA guidelines suggest a diploma of advanced studies (DAS) with the focus breast care on the basis of a bachelor’s degree for breast care nurses as well as two years practical experience. The nurses attend these studies alongside employment which are based on a modular system with eight presence days per module (DAS = 6 modules). Due to the actual COVID-19 situation and the nurses’ shortage in clinics, classroom teaching was no longer possible. Methods As a consequence and due to future learning trends, we generated the “breast care module” as a blended (face-to-face and virtual) module starting with a detailed content and target audience analysis. We illustrated the whole blended-learning course in a “scripting tool” with expert experiences included. Results The didactic methodology was adjusted by intensifying self-directed learning using Moodle, an online learning management system using Webinars, Wiki, peer-feedback, lessons-learned. The AVIVA methodology was utilised for the online course as well as for in-person classes. On the content aspect, new topics like pregnancy and breast cancer, genetic counselling, plastic surgery methods, follow-up care and survivorship were included. Conclusions This course is conducive to learning as it provides a deeper insight in specific topics and allows for independent learning at a time, that is most convenient for the participants. This is advantageous for nurses who work shifts. Despite distance learning, alternating classroom meetings are important for socialising and networking. Furthermore, a continuous theory-practice transfer on evidence-based decision-making and positive experience with an autonomous learning system is the basis for fruitful life-long learning. This course will support the participants in caring for women during the whole cancer care continuum process with high quality and patient satisfaction.|
