Employee cancer screening as part of wellbeing strategy
12 October 2021
Q&A with Professor Gordon Wishart. How the pandemic has disrupted cancer services whilst raising awareness of screening pathways.
Generali’s wellbeing partner Check4Cancer is playing an integral role, not only in the private sector, but also helping shape NHS cancer services, to help build the kind of support required to cope with the current backlog of screening and diagnosis in the UK, while also improving services for the future.
In this webinar for HR & Line Managers, Professor Wishart - Chief Medical Officer at Check4Cancer - talks to Generali about the current challenges facing the UK, and the practical measures that employers can take right now to better support their employees with regards to cancer prevention and early intervention, as part of a wellbeing programme.
You will learn:
- Why screening shouldn’t just be based on age.
- What employers and employees can do to identify those at highest risk at an early stage.
- How appropriate screening tests can be most effectively delivered to those identified as being at risk.
- Where this all fits into wider wellbeing strategy.
