CanRevive Inc. received a funding grant from Cancer Institute NSW to promote Bowel Cancer screening awareness and to investigate the low participation of the National Bowel Cancer Screening Program (NBCSP) among Australian Chinese.

Bowel Cancer may show no symptoms, but it can be treated successfully if detected in its early stages. NBCSP is a government funded program that aims to promote prevention and early detection of the illness and increase patients’ survival rate.

This national program offers free of charge stool testing for Bowel Cancer, which involves a few simple procedures that can be completed at home. Eligible Australians who aged between 50 and 74 will receive an information pack and testing kit by mail, comprise of the instructions, a set of testing tools and a return envelope. Chinese information about NBCSP can be found on their official website.

In partnership with ACMA, CanRevive will be conducting a series of linguistically and culturally appropriate public information sessions and a Bowel Cancer Information Day to promote Bowel Cancer Screening Awareness among the Chinese community. Details of the first information session are as follow:

Guest Speaker: Dr. Zeigfeld Yeh
Co-organizers: Australian Nursing Home Foundation and Ultimo Community Centre

The information sessions will focus on the topic “Prevention & Screening of Bowel Cancer” covering the risk factors, causes and symptoms of Bowel Cancer, ways to prevent the disease, bowel screening methods and the role GP plays in the screening process. Participant attended the information session will receive an information kit in Chinese and be invited to fill in a questionnaire.

This community engagement project will help the Chinese community to better understand bowel screening and encourage their participation for its benefits. For more information about the upcoming public information sessions, please contact CanRevive on 9212 7789 or go to the website.
