Health screens are designed to encourage employees to take an active interest in their own health and support them in making positive lifestyle changes. Some of these services can help identify serious cancers such as prostate and bowel at an early stage. The following ideas and strategies can apply to all cancer types that have screening mechanisms.
o Emphasise that screenings for the three most common cancers; breast, cervical and bowel cancer are available.
o Include these screening recommendations in a larger discussion about the importance of preventive care and recommended screenings.
o Communication methods could include brochures, emails, traditional post, posters, telephone reminders and more.
o For those whose results come back positive, emphasise the necessity for patients to seek a diagnostic follow-up and treatment as needed.
