Cancer screening

Brisbane South PHN recommends all practices regularly check and participate in training about current screening guidelines for breast cancer, cervical cancer and bowel cancer.

Screening guidelines:

Encouraging patient participation

There are many ways for practices to encourage patients to participate in screening, including:

  • displaying brochures, fliers and posters in the practice

  • demonstrating test kit use

  • sending reminders to eligible patients

Connect to the National Cancer Screening Register (NCSR)

Best Practice and MedicalDirector users can now access their patient’s bowel and cervical screening information from within their patient records, to help maximise participation in these life-saving programs.

Find more information here on how results can be integrated into the patient’s notes at the click of a button.
