NU-MED Group centers pursue health prevention by means of one-off and periodic actions as well as in the form of prophylactic programs.
Prevention falls into:
- early, i.e., propagation of healthy and active lifestyle
- primary, i.e., disease prevention through risk factor avoidance
- secondary, i.e., early disease detection and treatment
- third phase, i.e., inhibition of disease progression and complication limitation.
Early and primary prevention in NU-MED Group centers is sought by organizing themed events with elements of recreation, e.g., “Run for Health” run in Katowice and Tomaszów Mazowiecki. All manner of outdoor festivities are also conducive to preventive actions when blood sugar level, blood pressure are measured and body composition is analysed. Health prophylaxis is one of the tasks embarked on as part of Open Days in the centers in Elbląg, Katowice, Zamość and Tomaszów Mazowiecki.
Secondary prevention is effected by means of screening tests such as mammography, breast ultrasound, PSA assay to check prostate neoplasms, among others.
The actions may take on an organized form as preventive programs. NU-MED Center in Tomaszów Mazowiecki is one of 11 facilities in Poland that pursue the Regional Program for Primary Prevention and Early Detection of the Neoplasms of the Head and Neck. The program is carried out under a contract signed by NU-MED Center for Diagnostics and Oncology Therapy in Tomaszów Mazowiecki with the Ministry of Health from European Union funds.

Preventive actions are targeted at, i.a., persons who are professionally active. Talks are delivered in collaboration with entrepreneurs, often coupled with a medical test package. NU-MED Group receives the support of NU-MED Foundation as far as health promotion is concerned. Further information HERE:Fundacja NU-MED.
