Aboriginal Screening Engagement
Early detection of breast cancer is key to survival and effective treatment.
Aboriginal women are currently less likely to participate in breast cancer screening than non-Aboriginal women. This can result in many women presenting with more advanced cancer and therefore having a lower chance of survival.
To help reduce this disparity the Cancer Institute NSW has developed a range of content to inform Aboriginal women of the benefits of screening.
Our Aboriginal Screening Engagement video emphasises the importance of breast screening as part of a routine health check for women aged 50–74 years. Having a breast screen every two years is the best way to detect before any symptoms are noticed, and when treatment is likely to be most successful.
