Alberta Health Services Screening Programs have developed a number of resources intended for healthcare providers. In addition to staying up to date on clinical guidelines and health promotion research, the resources here will help you talk about cancer screening with your patients.

All of our resources are available free of charge and can be given to your patients to help answer some of their questions.

View our 2015 report on Organized Cancer Screening in Alberta.
