This free course is designed for primary healthcare providers and anyone with an interest in recognizing and preventing occupational and environmental cancer.
Many Canadians encounter carcinogens in their workplace or environment. Sometimes this exposure will cause cancer. Recognition of cancer from occupational or environmental causes is difficult because, in most cases, these cancers cannot be distinguished from other cancers.
This course teaches primary health care providers how to recognize occupational and environmental cancers and how to respond to this finding. Insights are provided into how the recognition of occupational and environmental cancer risks can lead to prevention. Case studies will highlight key points and allow participants to apply lessons learned.
Access to numerous free resources including online occupational and environmental cancer links, and Screening and Detailed Exposure History Questionnaires, is also provided.
This e-course was developed by members of the National Committee on Environmental and Occupational Exposures (NCEOE) in cooperation with CCOHS and funded by the Canadian Partnership Against Cancer (CPAC) through the Primary Prevention Action Group (PP-AG).
