Screening

In 2007, the provincial government made a commitment to increase early detection and facilitate the effective treatment of cancer with a focus on improving screening rates for these cancers. To accomplish this, the focus to date has been on planning and laying the foundation for implementation of a fully integrated cancer screening strategy for Ontario.

 

Key elements of the Integrated Cancer Screening (ICS) strategy:

  • Increase patient participation in screening

  • Improve primary care provider performance in screening

  • Establish a high-quality integrated screening system and information management and technology infrastructure.

The integrated cancer screening program focuses on Cancer Care Ontario’s three distinct screening programs: ColonCancerCheck, the Ontario Breast Screening Program and the Ontario Cervical Screening Program. These programs are at different stages of development and maturity and are currently supported by three different information systems.
