The Junior Researcher project from Mireille Broeders has been granted:
Personalised risk-based approaches may help target screening and prevention for breast cancer to women who will benefit most while sparing costs and complications among women who would experience less benefit. However, little is known about the acceptability of personalised approaches, especially for women at low risk, and the challenges in implementation. The objectives of this study are:
1. To make an inventory on ethical, medico-legal, communicational and organisational issues related to personalised risk-based screening and prevention whilst acknowledging the diversity in healthcare systems across Europe.
2. To provide insight in the acceptability of personalised risk-based breast cancer screening and prevention approaches for European women.
The study will be designed as a (semi-)qualitative study and will include a systematic literature search, focus group interviews and an online questionnaire survey.
