  • : Chatswood NSW 2067

Bowel cancer is an ongoing health issue in Australia, with public awareness and screening rates falling behind other well-known cancers. This activity provides an overview of bowel cancer and its incidence, and outlines the way increased screening can offer a reduction in mortality and morbidity. 
By completing this learning activity, participants will be able to:

  • Be aware of the prevalence and mortality of bowel cancer across the Australian population.
  • Understand the impact of early detection in reducing mortality.
  • Be aware of the differences between screening technologies and appreciate the impact on participation rates.
  • Know about available bowel screening programs in Australia, and the impact of GP engagement on participation rates.
  • Be familiar with the alternate screening programs for Australians outside the NBCSP target age range and alongside the NBCSP.

This activity is supported by Clinical Genomics.
