Countries with limited oncology resources are facing a rise in cancer incidence. To address this growing need, all sectors of the health care system must collaborate on exercising cancer control.
The Cancer Control in Primary Care course provides primary health care providers with practical and specific knowledge that can be put into daily practice. Course topics focus on:
- Early detection and referral networks
- Cancer prevention
- Local resources
92% of those who have participated in the CCPC course say they intend to make practice changes based on what they learned.
What Our Attendees Are Saying
“The CCPC course has been a real blessing to the community. Not only has it brought cancer control issues to the attention of policy makers, it has equipped health care providers with practical skills in cancer prevention, management, and advocacy.”
