LGBTQ+ and Cancer Care Through the Primary Care Lens ECHO 

The American Cancer Society is proud to present this ECHO series in part through funding support provided by Merck & Co., Inc. This ECHO pilot project has been developed to collaborate with academic institutions across 5 states to address the unique needs of the LGBTQ+ population in primary care settings. The content of the ECHO will primarily focus on increasing cancer prevention, screening and early detection that is more inclusive and sensitive to the unique needs and barriers faced by members of the LGBTQ+ community. The goals of this project are for multidisciplinary teams (primary care physicians, nurse practitioners, nurses, medical assistants, and any other ancillary staff) to enhance the quality care for this marginalized population. Teams will be challenged to increase cancer screening along with providing a welcoming and safe place to receive care. The six ECHO sessions will cover communication, shared decision making, HPV related cancers, Cervical and breast cancer screening for gender diverse patients and colon cancer screening. Additionally, the 5-state pilot will encourage cross-state collaboration and best practice sharing as teams develop a more inclusive cancer prevention and early detection care model.
