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.
The statewide screening rates for cervical, colorectal and breast cancer are improving, but we can do better! ICSI and the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) are continuing our collaboration to help medical groups enhance current screening efforts around these three cancers. The collaborative will start with an informational webinar on June 27, followed by in-person sessions and conference calls through June of 2014. Participation counts toward health care home recertification. A readiness assessment is included. Sign up, or contact Melissa Marshall at 952-814-7060, or Cassie Myers at 952-814-7076, with questions.
This learning collaborative on cancer prevention screening, a partnership with the Minnesota Department of Heath, is looking at processes for breast, colorectal and cervical cancer screening. The goal is to make health system changes to facilitate risk-appropriate screening.
