We aim to transform cancer prevention by collaborating with Albertans to create innovative solutions to enhance the places where we live, work, seek health care, play and age.

 

Cancer Prevention and Screening Innovation (CPSI)

The CPSI team is committed to an Alberta where most cancers are prevented and where our innovations are having an impact. We are a team of facilitators, researchers and evaluators who work alongside communities to create healthy places and spaces.

We aim to prevent cancer by helping to shape communities, workplaces and health system to make it easier for all of us to take proven steps to prevent cancer every day. This can be done by making healthy food options available and affordable for everyone; by building communities that provide shade and support being active; by encouraging workplaces to support healthy choices; and by having health care providers routinely talk to us about cancer prevention and screening.

We take what we know and find out what works right here in Alberta. We partner with communities, employers and health service providers who are interested in pioneering new approaches. Then we help bring solutions to the rest of the province, with a focus on groups who tend to have higher rates of cancer.

We aim to transform cancer prevention by collaborating with Albertans to create innovative solutions to enhance the places where we live, work, seek health care, play and age.

Together, we have developed community-friendly, evidence-based tools and resources that support citizens across Alberta to achieve their shared vision of a healthier community.

By providing an evidence-based approach to planning and evaluating community level interventions we increase community capacity to build healthy places and spaces for all Albertans. Our goal is to empower communities to define, assess, analyze, and act on local opportunities. This model can be used broadly to act on the factors that determine health.ALBERTA HEALTHY COMMUNITIES APPROACH
