Tips for Passing the Word for clinic planners
Physicians' offices can:
- Keep women in the habit of being screened regularly by setting up a "tracking and tickler" system to remind physicians to do clinical breast exams and discuss mammography during patient visits.
- Run a prerecorded telephone message about the importance of mammography screening that clients can listen to while on hold for your office.
- Schedule a physician from your clinic to speak to local media about breast cancer detection.
- Give women an action step as part of your NBCAM message. List a toll-free telephone number to call for more breast cancer information or how to find a low-cost mammogram.
Make sure to do your part this month. Pass the word along.
