Primary Care Cancer Control Quality Improvement Toolkit

An easy-to-follow roadmap for improving cancer screening rates and cancer prevention activities in your practice or health service.
Primary Care Cancer Control Quality Improvement Toolkit

This toolkit aims to support ways that cancer screening and prevention activities can be built into your practice or health service. 

The toolkit is sectioned into quality improvement (QI) modules focused on cancer screening and cancer prevention. 

Each module will guide you through the steps required to:

  • Promote a patient centred approach to increase participation in national cancer screening programs and reduce risky lifestyle behaviours through preventative programs.
  • Guide a team-based approach to quality improvement, utilising data and systems to increase participation in national cancer screening programs and preventative programs to reduce cancer risk.  
Research shows that patients who are reminded by their GP to attend cancer screening are more likely to screen.1 

Your partnership in the promotion of cancer screening programs and healthy living is vital in detecting cancers early, leading to the best possible outcomes for patients.
