  • The Special Surveillance Breast Program (SSBP) is a long-term, comprehensive, multidisciplinary program for women determined to be at high risk for the development of breast cancer. Because the women who attend this program are otherwise healthy but concerned about their risk for breast cancer, current and relevant information is required to address their concerns regarding the possibility of developing breast cancer. The purpose of this article is to describe the risk factors that indicate eligibility for the program, the structure of the program, and the results of an assessment that identified the needs of this special population.
