The Policy Framework for Population Screening for Cancer
The Policy Framework for Population Screening for Cancer provides an overview of the legal and policy framework established by the Ministry of Health, Welfare and Sport in relation to the population screening programmes for cervical cancer, breast cancer and bowel cancer. This document also describes the collaboration of the parties involved in the preparation, decision-making and execution of the population screening programmes for cancer.
The policy framework therefore forms the basis for further development of the execution frameworks for the population screening programmes in question.
The Framework for the Execution of Cervical Cancer Population Screening
The Framework for the Execution of Cervical Cancer Population Screening describes how the cervical cancer screening programme must be carried out. It describes the primary process, the roles of the parties involved and the quality requirements that each party or process must meet.
The execution framework has been drawn up for all professionals involved in:
- the coordination and execution of the cervical cancer screening programme and subsequent diagnostics and treatment/monitoring;
- quality assurance, monitoring and evaluation of the population screening.
The Framework for the Execution of Cervical Cancer Population Screening is based on the legal and policy frameworks that apply to population screening for cancer.
