In the summer of 2018, the Integrated Cancer Screening and Prevention Program (ICS team) partnered with Cancer Care Ontario (CCO) to conduct a mapping exercise based on census data to identify areas where screening rates are low, for the following screening programs in the region:
- Ontario Breast Screening Program (OBSP)
- ColonCancerCheck (CCC)
- Ontario Cervical Screening Program (OCSP)
- Lung Cancer Screening Pilot for People at High Risk (HR LCSP) pilot
The ICS team also conducted an environmental scan focusing on primary care providers, cancer screening managers, and most importantly, patients, to identify and understand challenges to cancer screening. We are now reaching out to regional stakeholders in order to work together to develop improvement initiatives focused on increasing screening rates and facilitating healthier populations. For this reason, we would like to invite you to a series of information sessions being held in key areas including Hawkesbury, Cornwall, Petawawa, Pembroke and Renfrew.
To learn more about the impact you can have on the screening rates for the four cancer screening programs in the Champlain region, we invite you to register for an event in your area.
