GPEx and Jodi Lee Foundation join forces to promote bowel cancer screening
GPEx and the Jodi Lee Foundation have joined forces for the second consecutive year to provide comprehensive education on the National Bowel Cancer Screening Program to GPs and their health teams. The collaboration encompassed delivering a series of educational webinars as well as developing a National Bowel Cancer Screening Program Leaning Hub.
The webinars, which attracted close to 300 registrations, focused on educating participants about the role of GPs and practice nurses in the National Bowel Cancer Screening Program. Additionally, attendees gained insights into the correct procedure for completing the bowel cancer screening home test.
Webinar attendees praised the program for its clear and concise education and deemed it “highly effective” for bolstering their confidence when discussing bowel cancer screening with their patients. Moreover, the Department of Health praised the program as the gold standard in education.
The National Bowel Cancer Screening Program Learning Hub
GPEx worked with the Jodi Lee Foundation to develop the National Bowel Cancer Screening Program (NBCSP) Learning Hub, an online resource aimed at equipping practitioners with the skills and knowledge they need to support patients in the National Bowel Cancer Screening Program. Each educational resource is short yet informative, to maximise learning as quickly and easily as possible.
Overall, the collaboration between GPEx and the Jodi Lee Foundation has proved instrumental in empowering primary care professionals in the pivotal role they play in the National Bowel Cancer Screening Program, ultimately contributing to the overall goal of early detection and prevention of bowel cancer.
