Colorectal cancer screening in Flanders. 01/12/2017 - 30/11/2019


The Flemish colorectal cancer screening programme was implemented at the end of 2013. This screening programme is performing well with a high participation rate of more than 50%. Nevertheless, there is still room for improvement regarding several aspects. In the mean time, however, a lot of data are available which permit to perform analyses to find out in what area the screening programme can still be improved. With this doctoral thesis it is the intention to use the extensive data base of the Flemish colorectal cancer screening programme to find indicators that can lead to recommendations which, when implemented, will at the end result in an even better functioning cancer screeningn programme.
