Alaska Breast & Cervical Screening and Assistance Program

Cervical Cancer Awareness Month - Increase Cancer Screening Rates

Free resources on How to Increase Cancer Screening Rates - Open Office Hours

January is Cervical Cancer Awareness Month, and it is an ideal time to focus on increasing rates of cervical cancer screening. Mountain Pacific Quality Health with support from the Alaska Breast and Cervical Screening Assistance Program, is offering individualized one-on-one support/technical assistance to clinics on evidence-based strategies to improve cervical cancer screening rates during the month of January.  Some examples of what support we can offer include:

  • Review cancer screening performance ( eCQM 124) and identify care gaps

  • Identify patients coming due and overdue for screening

  • Conduct and outreach campaign

  • Host a women’s wellness day

  • Set up reminders for providers

  • Set up reminders for patients

  • Set up a process to track results

 

If interested, please select a day/time that works best for you. If you need additional support after the initial meeting, additional support is available through June 2024.  SCHEDULE your one-on-on session HERE!


Transportation Assistance Through Uber Health

AK B+C has an account with Uber Health that is available to all participating providers to help your patients with any transportation barriers preventing them from accessing breast or cervical cancer screening. Currently Uber Health is limited to Anchorage, Fairbanks, and Juneau but we anticipate they will expand their services to other areas of Alaska.
