As part of our work to develop a new approach to ethics to help guide the work of the UK National Screening Committee (UK NSC), we tested the proposals by looking at family cascade screening for familial hypercholesterolemia (FH).
Catherine was seconded to the UK NSC from April 2020 to June 2021 to undertake a review of how the UK NSC considers ethical issues raised by screening questions, and how it engages with stakeholders and the public to inform its work.
She is Assistant Director at the Nuffield Council on Bioethics where she is responsible for running Council projects and its horizon scanning programme. Catherine has a particular interest in genomic testing and screening.
The UK National Screening Committee has been reviewing the way it considers ethical issues.
We launched a survey in 2020 to find out your views on how the UK National Screening Committee (UK NSC) involves stakeholders and the public in its work.
