The Barriers to Effective Screening Tool

What are the main barriers to an effective screening system for breast, cervical and colorectal cancer? This study, which uses a health systems approach and explores the views of expert representatives from screening organisations, researchers and policy-makers, gives a fresh perspective on barriers to organised cancer screening in Europe. The authors developed and applied the Barriers to Effective Screening Tool (BEST) and present results from 31 countries.

The project was launched in September 2015 and will continue to August 2020.

This project has received funding from the European Unionʼs Horizon2020 Programme under grant agreement no 634753
