Cancer Screening Workshop

Wednesday, October 12, 2016

1:00 – 4:00pm

Would you like to increase the cancer screening rates in your practice, but feel like you don’t have the time to do so? The challenge for many practices is that our offices are already working at capacity with little time to do more. Join us for an afternoon to learn how to optimize office work flow to increase your cancer screening rates.

Learning Objectives and Target Audience


Dr. Meghan Davis

Workshop Objective:

This workshop will enable you to put together a cancer screening work flow protocol for your office. You will become familiar with and be able to access a variety of tools. The session will be led by Dr. Meghan Davis, Hamilton Family Health Team (HFHT) Physician and Regional Primary Care Lead for Cancer Care Ontario, as well as other cancer screening and EMR experts.

Who should attend?

Anyone who works in a primary care setting including front line staff, administrators, nurses, other health professionals*, and physicians. 

*IHPs can be an important part of improving cancer screening rates in practices, however, IHPs should confirm involvement or interest of the rest of the practice team before registering for this event.
