Timely diagnosis and treatment for breast cancer was enhanced through $350,000 in grants from the Health Sciences Foundation. A new digital mammography unit purchased for the Linda Buchan Centre is capable of exact and accurate placement of the needle for the tissue sample for breast biopsy.
Cancer screening detects pre-cancerous changes or cancer at an early stage when there is a better chance of treating it successfully. This page contains the most up-to-date resources and links about cancer screening including Cancer Care Ontario guidelines, the Screen for Life Coach travel schedule, and regional cancer screening initiatives.
Cancer Care Ontario developed the Screening Activity Report (SAR) as a supplementary tool to support patient enrolment model (PEM) physicians in improving their cancer screening rates and appropriate follow-up. The SAR provides a comprehensive summary of patients’ breast, cervical, and colorectal cancer screening related to history and is comprised of three types of reports:
The SAR is available online to PEM family physicians across the province who are registered with eHealth Ontario ONEID. To register, please contact the Screening Promotion Planner/Local Registration Authority at (807) 684-7241 or send your registration request to ONEIDBusinessSupport@ehealthontario.on.ca. Please include your name and CPSO number.
Registration appointments will be scheduled based on the location and/or time of request. You may also authorize users, such as clinic administrator or nurse, to view your report as a Delegate. Delegates must also register with ONE ID before accessing your SAR.
