Join us for a 15-minute podcast and two 15-minute Clinical Coffee Break activities to explore both the current challenges and emerging landscape of cancer screening, including how the use of multi-cancer early detection (MCED) screening tests may improve cancer care. You’ll not only discover how to integrate newer cancer screening methods into your practice, but you’ll also learn communication strategies to enhance your overall discussions on cancer screening. Across these 3 activities, expert faculty will deliver evidence-based instruction, offer clinical insights, and present case examples to guide you to earlier cancer diagnoses and potentially improve outcomes.

Learning Objectives

  • Appraise the evolving landscape of cancer screening, including limitations of existing screening methods and guidelines
  • Describe the complementary, or additive, role that blood-based screening can play in the primary care setting, specifically for multi-cancer early detection (MCED)
  • Identify patients who could benefit from MCED and describe the various points in cancer screening and care where MCED could help shape patient outcomes
  • Outline evidence-based communication strategies and practice tools that increase cancer screening rates and improve conversations around diagnosis
