Personalized invitation letter
A personalized invitation letter is sent to every woman in the age group targeted by the program.
When they turn 50, all women in Québec are mailed an invitation to take part in the Québec breast cancer screening program (Programme québécois de dépistage du cancer du sein). Services are available in every region of Québec.
What makes the Québec breast cancer screening program different is that the invitation letter not only provides full information and the necessary phone numbers, but is also a prescription enabling the woman to arrange for a screening mammogram herself.
