Let’s Beat Bowel Cancer and the Cabrini Monash University Department of Surgery in conjunction with Victorian Department of Health and Human Services have created a GP education series for the National Bowel Cancer Screening Program (NBCSP).
The role of general practitioners is central to improving uptake of the NBCSP and these four videos are designed to educate Australian GPs to assist them with their patients in participating in bowel cancer screening.
The first video (see above) outlines the National Bowel Cancer Screening Program and the symptoms potentially indicative of bowel cancer.
The second video discusses the classification of risk of bowel cancer in the general population who have no symptoms.
The third video gives a more detailed overview of the bowel cancer screening program and discusses its potential impact on your practice.
The fourth and final video presents a number of case studies, which demonstrate a range of age, symptom and family history combinations to help with your understanding of patient suitability for the bowel cancer screening program.
