Evaluation of the Bowel Screening Pilot – Follow-up Provider Survey
The Ministry of Health has funded Waitematā District Health Board to run a Bowel Screening Pilot (BSP) over four years from 2012 – 2016. An evaluation of the BSP is being undertaken by Litmus and Sapere Research Group.The goal of the evaluation is to determine whether organised bowel screening could be introduced in New Zealand in a way that is effective, safe and acceptable for participants, equitable and economically efficient.
The purpose of the provider surveys is to assess providers’ awareness and knowledge of the BSP, attitudes towards the BSP and its delivery mechanisms, and perceived impact of the BSP on normal services. The surveys also aim to measure attitudes towards a possible national roll-out of a bowel screening programme.
