BreastScreen Victoria has released a new digital version of their GP Recommendation Pad which provides information to help patients book a breast screen appointment.
Research shows that a GP recommendation is important to ensure strong participation in the BreastScreen Victoria program. A screen with BreastScreen Victoria only takes 10 minutes, it’s with a woman and it’s free.
BreastScreen Victoria does not require a GP referral as it is a population-based screening program designed for asymptomatic women and trans and gender diverse people aged 50-74 years. People with symptoms of breast cancer should be referred for diagnostic breast imaging.
If you are interested in ways to increase screening participation at your clinic, Breastscreen Victoria can support you to do this.
For any queries, please contact BreastScreen Victoria’s Community Engagement team at firstname.lastname@example.org
Visit the Breast Cancer Screening page on HealthPathways Melbourne for clinical and referral information at the point of care.
