Concurrent conversations

These are facilitated, cross-disciplinary small groups which have experts as resources for structured conversations linked to key topics in cancer screening and prevention and which lead to recommendations for action to be shared with all participants. A three-month follow-up survey will collect data on related post-Dialogue cancer screening activities of participants.
