Alberta Screening and Prevention


The focus of Alberta Screening and Prevention (ASaP) is to support physicians, nurse practitioners and clinic teams to offer a screening and prevention bundle to all their patients through enhanced opportunistic and planned outreach methods (targeting patients who do not present for screening care)
