Have questions about how to follow-up on a patient’s mammogram or when their next one should be?
Need information on when to refer a patient for a colposcopy, or when their next Pap test should be when discharged?
Wondering if and when a patient should be screened with a colonoscopy or FIT following their initial colonoscopy?
An eConsult with your local cancer screening lead can help you to easily find the answers to these questions. I have been seeking their advice for patient-specific questions I have related to cancer screening, and I have found e-consults to be very helpful and wanted to share this tip with other providers.
