FIT Webinars for Family Doctors

 

 

On June 24, 2019, Ontario is transitioning from the guaiac fecal occult blood test (gFOBT) to the fecal immunochemical test (FIT) as the recommended screening test for people at average risk of developing colorectal cancer. 

Compared to gFOBT, FIT is preferred by patients, easier to use and detects twice as many clinically relevant lesions, including advanced adenomas and colorectal cancers (1). Family doctors are key to the successful transition to FIT.

To support the transition to FIT, Cancer Care Ontario is hosting interactive webinars for family doctors to learn more about FIT, including:

  • Ordering FIT with the FIT requisition
  • FIT return and reporting
  • Tools to support you and your patients

Please select one of the webinars in the registration section below. Please note:

  • There is a maximum 250 participants per session
  • Sign-up is based on a first come, first serve basis
  • A webinar recording will be made available prior to FIT launch at a later date
  • Webinar presentation material will be made available before your scheduled webinar date (note: consent to share your e-mail with Cancer Care Ontario is required)
  • To cancel or reschedule your webinar date, follow the instructions included in your registration confirmation email

To learn more about the transition to FIT, visit the FIT Resource Hub at cancercareontario.ca/FITHub.
