Prevention

Primary Care Providers are well aware that for any chronic disease management such as cancer, we need to help patients become aware and modify known risk factors.  Both providers and patients are challenged with preventing cancer through modification of risk factors such as smoking, alcohol consumption, poor diet and lack of physical activity.

Patients and providers will appreciate the MyCancerIQ tool for developing a patient specific personalized risk profile for breast, cervical, colorectal and lung cancers. Users can access www.MyCancerIQ.ca  on their smart phone, tablet or desktop. My CancerIQ personalized risk reports and guides can be saved, printed, emailed and  discussed with a primary care provider.
