Help improve screening rates by adding your name to patient correspondence

I’ve signed up! Have you? Adding your name to letters inviting patients to get screened for cancer significantly increases the chances that they’ll undergo screening. With this in mind, Cancer Care Ontario (CCO) has invited Family Physicians to include their name on correspondence to patients inviting them to get screened.  This will start with colorectal screening and expand to include cervical and breast cancer screening. You should have received an invitation to sign up. If it has gone missing, or you haven’t signed up yet, please click here to find out how. Check out this sample letter to patients.
