Cancer Prevention

Cancer is a leading cause of death among Minnesotans. Since 2010, ICSI has worked with the Minnesota Department of Health and the American Cancer Society to increase cancer screening. We have participated in roundtable discussions, facilitated advisory groups and led learning collaboratives on cancer screening.

2013-2014 Collaborative

The organizations created value stream maps to identify opportunities for improvement and then focused on pre-visit planning, reminders and systemwide implementation of the evidence.
