The Cancer Institute NSW commissioned the Improvement Foundation to develop a Cancer Screening Primary Care Collaborative to support the NSW Cancer Plan to substantially improve cancer control through NSW.
The Cancer Screening Primary Care Collaborative used the Model for Improvement to support participants to implement change in small, manageable cycles and identify where change actually leads to an improvement.
As part of the program, The Improvement Foundation worked with The Cancer Institute of NSW to finalise the Cancer Screening Primary Care Collaborative Handbook, including its aims, change principles, ideas and measurements, along with examples, best practice guidelines and tools for change. The Handbook was distributed to all general practices involved in the program. The Improvement Foundation continues to work with The Cancer Institute NSW as part of our ongoing partnership with them.
