Let's talk about it: Cervical cancer, messaging and intergenerational communication (a collaborative session between the Women's Caucus and Cancer Forum)

Monday, November 2, 2015: 10:30 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.
Although cancer prevention and control efforts have been successful in general, disparities continue to exist among underserved populations, and in this annual collaborative session with the Cancer Forum, current initiatives at both the provider and individual levels will be discussed. The first presentation focuses on the impact of patient-centered medical home transformation on health care quality at federally-funded community health centers, while the remaining three presentations share progress achieved and challenges faced in improving breast and cervical cancer screening among underserved, hard to reach and rarely or never screened women (i.e., Latina, African American and Korean American). Strategies used to effect change include use of home collection kits, a mobile phone-based app and the bond between mother and daughter. Presenters will discuss application of these strategies to other populations.
Session Objectives: Describe the effect of patient-centered medical home transformation at federally-funded community health centers. Discuss novel approaches to breast and cervical cancer prevention among underserved women. Assess strengths and challenges of each approach with respect to underserved women.
