Comprehensive Cancer Professional Education Webinar Series: Screening and Early Detection
Cancer is the second leading cause of death in Illinois. The incidence of breast, cervical, lung, and colorectal cancers is higher than the national average. Significant disparities exist for all cancers by race/ethnicity, access to services, socioeconomic status, and geographic location. It is imperative to understand the disparities, and their determinants and identify solutions to address cancer disparities across our state.
This session will focus on how to use evidence-based guidelines to screen for common cancers and manage early detection.
At the conclusion of this activity, participants will be able to:
- Identify different methods of conducting effective community outreach and education activities to promote screening and early detection to achieve equitable health outcomes;
- Describe methods to identify eligible patients for cancer screenings with a focus on identifying high-risk and vulnerable patients;
- Discuss how to implement patient navigation for patients facing barriers to access screening, early detection, and treatment to decrease health disparities.
