Update on the Ontario Breast Screening Program

submitted by Bonnie Erwin, BNSc, Public Health Nurse

The Ontario Breast Screening Program is celebrating 10 years of saving lives through early detection. Since the opening of the Brockville General Hospital affiliate site in April, 384 women have been screened. The Health Promotion and Chronic Disease Prevention Department have been very busy supporting this service especially during Breast Health Awareness Month in October.

All family physicians in the tri-county area have received Ontario Breast Screening Program information packages. Displays have been up in banks, businesses and industry. Radio news spots and Cable 10 have also cooperated in getting the message out. Presentations to groups, and an ongoing leadership in the Brockville and Area, Breast Health Coalition, continue to support the Brockville General Hospital site. The O.B.S.P. goal is to have 70% of women 50 years of age and over attending the O.B.S.P. program by the year 2010.

At a September meeting of Public Health Nurses from South Eastern Ontario and the Kingston Center of the Ontario Breast Screening Program, Gloria Opzoomer and Bonnie Erwin were presented with certificates of appreciation. The certificates "recognize(s) the diligence and creativity of those who have worked so hard to support the O.B.S.P. in their communities. It is because of your efforts that the Ontario Breast Screening Program has achieved 10 years of success. Many thanks are due."
