Queensland Bowel Cancer Screening Program
These resources, produced by Queensland Health, are designed to raise awareness about bowel cancer and the importance of testing among Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.
The two brochures use culturally appropriate wording and graphics to provide information on the following areas: what is bowel cancer; who is at risk of bowel cancer; symptoms; how to minimise risk; and how to perform the home screening test.
The flipchart is a 43 page resource that contains information on bowel cancer and bowel screening for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. Topics covered in the flipchart include: the bowel; cancer; who is at risk; symptoms; testing; and reducing risk. The flipchart uses the same wording and graphics as the brochures.
