Cancer screening in primary care: strategies for your office. A program of the Connecticut Division of the American Cancer Society.

Author information

Division of Hematology/Oncology, University of Connecticut School of Medicine, Farmington, USA.


Primary-care physicians' compliance with cancer screening guidelines has been in general unsatisfactory. Mailings have not had the desired effect upon these busy physicians who are preoccupied with many other issues. The Ohio Division of the American Cancer Society developed a program of in-office cancer screening education of primary-care physicians which resulted in a significant improvement in compliance to cancer screening guidelines. The Connecticut Division of the American Cancer Society has pursued this concept with their own program of visits targeted at physicians and their office staffs. A description of this program, which is still in its initial phases, is presented. The impact will be evaluated in due time, however additional volunteers to conduct these visits are needed.
