Home Bowel Cancer Screening Psychological Barriers - Testing the validity and reliability of the Barriers to Home Bowel Cancer Screening
23 NOV 2021
1.30 PM - 3.00 PM

The National Bowel Cancer Screening Program (NBCSP) has been shown to be an effective way of detecting and preventing bowel cancer on a population scale with the ability to save thousands of lives and millions of healthcare dollars each year. Unfortunately, only a little over 40% of recipients take part in the program by completing and returning a bowel cancer screening kit. 

Recently a scale was developed to measure the specific barriers that people experience when it comes to screening for bowel cancer through the National Bowel Cancer Screening Program (NBCSP). 

To ensure the validity and reliability of this measure, psychometric properties will be cross-validated in a new sample of Australian adults between the ages of 50 and 74, and its ability to predict screening behaviour tested.
