The Women’s Cancer Screening Collaborative Evaluation Report
It is with great pleasure NCPHN presents the Women’s Cancer Screening Collaborative (WCSC) Final Evaluation Report.
The WCSC improved breast and cervical screening rates on the North Coast through the delivery of structured, clinician led general practice quality improvement and health literacy interventions.
NCPHN is confident that the quality improvement measures introduced by the WCSC will result in sustainable change for participating practices because of the project’s focus on supporting practices to build capacity, system strengthening and translation of changes into practice policy.
100 per cent of practices said they gained the necessary skills and knowledge from their involvement in the WCSC to apply lessons learnt to other practice quality improvement projects confirming the scalability and value for future ongoing successes for other quality improvements projects in general practices.
“In my 18 years of working as a practice manager and being involved in many different studies, data collection etc. with my local PHN this would have to be the one of the most worthwhile, fulfilling programs I have had the pleasure of being involved in”
