This 3-part video series focuses on reaching the “hard to reach” population for cancer screening.  

This work is based off of the experience of the Colorado Cancer Screening Program for colorectal cancer and now expanded to also include breast and cervical screening, HPV vaccination, lung cancer screening and also prostate screening.

Familiarity with motivational interviewing (MI) is recommended before taking this course. 

Presented by: Alliance of Colorado Community Health Workers, Patient Navigators and Promotores de Salud, in partnership with the Patient Navigator Training Collaborative, with funding from Colorado Cancer Coalition.

The virtual workshop simulates an in-person training environment by having all participants on screen via video. Recorded in Fall 2018.

In this course, you will learn to:

  • Apply focusing skills when having conversations with clients with multiple needs
  • Apply the elicit, provide, elicit motivational interviewing technique when providing specific cancer screening information to patients/clients
  • Integrate the OARS techniques when working with patient/client populations who have many barriers to accessing preventive cancer screening
  • Identify common barriers to preventive cancer screening to better understand how to communicate with patients/client/community about preventive cancer screening
