HOW WE CAN HELP
The aim of the Cancer Screening project is to optimise the accessibility and appropriateness of information for the Chinese community to:
- Ensure equal access to information as a means of supporting informed decision making
- Understand cultural and/or other barriers which can prevent or inhibit access to screening programmes
- Increase uptake of screening programmes potentially leading to better health outcomes for the target communities
The Development Worker of this project will also provide follow-up support to people diagnosed with cancer and their family /carers as appropriate.
The project will target breast and cervical cancer screening programmes/services and be delivered in Edinburgh and the Lothians.
