UK NSC screening seminars: let us know what you'd like us to cover

Posted by: , Posted on: - Categories: General

In 2023, the UK National Screening Committee (UK NSC) set up a series of online screening seminars open to all. We’d like to continue providing these popular free to attend sessions and want to make sure we cover topics of wide interest. This is where you come in…

If you have any ideas for topic areas for us to cover, we’d love to hear from you. Topics could relate specifically to the work of the UK NSC, or look at current and upcoming issues from across the world of screening – practical or theoretical.

For example, would you like to find out more about new tests for detecting multiple cancers? Learn about the challenges of assessing evidence for screening for rare diseases? Or hear about how the definition of screening differs from case finding?

Our sessions in 2023 were led by colleagues from the UK NSC, NHS, universities, and screening programmes, and covered:

  • Developing a clinical pathway for modelling of targeted lung cancer screening – looking at the evidence and the processes followed by the UK NSC
  • Planning and implementing and in-service evaluation (ISE) – drawing from the real world context of the ISE of screening for severe combined immunodeficiency as part of newborn blood spot screening
  • Polygenic scores – looking at the potential benefits and risks in their use for calculating overall risk for developing a disease or condition

How to send us your ideas
