All.Can Argentina decided to promote actions to shorten the time between the first consultation of the patient and cancer diagnosis.
The work focuses on training of primary care physicians in order to raise awareness of screening strategies, on how to suspect a diagnosis and learn about the resources available for diagnosis and the referral circuit.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the in-person training plans were cancelled and All.Can Argentina started with a video production involving different experts. The first video series has now been completed.
The videos include a brief general overview as well as separated sections for four different types of tumours (breast, colorectal, lung and cervical cancer). Each section includes data of the burden of the disease in Argentina, risk factors, interventions for prevention and early detection, data on symptoms and reason for consulting and algorithm for managing symptomatic patients.
All.Can Argentina is already working on a new series based on hematologic cancers.
