Providers Practice Prevention (SM)
The Kentucky Cancer Program is nationally recognized for continuing education, training programs, and reference materials for health care professionals.  Providers Practice Prevention strives to improve cancer prevention, detection, and treatment through systems approaches, and professional education.  The Kentucky Department for Public Health is one of KCP's most valued partners in the following:

  • Self-Study Modules:  A series of Providers Practice Prevention (SM) self-study education modules have been offered to primary care providers on breast cancer screening and diagnosis, cervical cancer screening and diagnosis, and treating tobacco use and dependence.
  • Web-Based Training Modules:  Self-study modules are available free of charge on the web to train health care providers on the Kentucky Women’s Cancer Screening Program, Breast and Cervical Cancer Treatment Program, cultural diversity issues in reaching women who are never and rarely screened for breast and cervical cancer, and nurse case management for women with abnormal breast and cervical cancer screening results. 
  • Webcasts:  KCP also takes advantage of available technology to offer training to remote locations via webcasts in collaboration with Kentucky TRAIN.
  • Training for Health Care Providers:  Trainings incorporating standardized  patients are offered to medical and dental professionals in academic institutions.
  • Workshops for Practicing Health Care Providers:  Treating Tobacco Use and Dependence is presented to practicing medical and dental professionals to help patients overcome nicotine addiction.
  • Hospital Inpatient Tobacco Treatment:  Under contract with the Kentucky Department for Public Health, the Kentucky Cancer Program has developed a program to help Kentucky hospitals implement systems to assist inpatients who use tobacco and to refer them to additional resources for post-discharge.
