Abstract

In Saskatchewan, fewer than 40 per cent of eligible women go for their free screening mammograms through the Screening Program for Breast Cancer, and that participation rate has been steadily declining.

Early detection of breast abnormalities saves lives. To improve public health, Dr. Cheryl Camillo is collaborating with the Saskatchewan Cancer Agency, patient partners, and community organizations to find out more about why eligible women don't participate in the screening program. For example, are they receiving mammograms elsewhere?
