Alberta Screening and Prevention
Preventative screening works!
Many diseases can be identified before the patient notices any symptoms if the appropriate screenings are performed on a regular basis by physicians. 

All adults should have these basic screenings:
  • Blood pressure
  • Height and weight
  • Exercise assessment
  • Tobacco use assessment
  • Alcohol use assessment
  • Flu vaccine
  • Cholesterol testing
  • Heart disease risk
  • Diabetes
  • Colorectal Cancer
Women should also have:
  • Pap test
  • Mammogram
What is Alberta Screening and Prevention (ASAP)?
ASAP is an initiative to support family physicians and their team members in improving their offer of evidence based screening and prevention maneuvers to patients.
