4280.0 Cancer Screening and Prevention

Tuesday, November 10, 2009: 2:30 PM
This session delves into factors associated with cancer screening practices. Presentations will explore how screening practices are related to neighborhood ethnic distribution, and other social and environmental factors. Learners will also be exposed to research on racial differences in reported receipt of screening recommendations from healthcare providers and adherence to screening guidelines and its relationship with cancer detection.
Session Objectives: 1. Compare the trends in health care provider recommendations for colorectal cancer screening between 2002 and 2006, by race. 2. Demonstrate the association between ethnic concentration and breast and cervical cancer screening among older Mexican American women. 3. Identify how U.S. breast, colorectal and prostate cancer screening utilization responds to cancer screening guideline information with respect to the age of screening initiation.
