Publication Cover

An evaluation of the Waitemata District Health Board Bowel Screening Pilot is being undertaken to help inform a decision on whether it is feasible to roll out a national bowel screening programme.

Telephone surveys were conducted to measure awareness, knowledge and attitudes about bowel cancer and the bowel screening pilot.

Baseline surveys were conducted in November-–December 2011; one with 50–74 year olds (the eligible screening population) living within the Waitemata DHB area and one with 50–74 year olds living outside the Waitemata DHB area.

This report presents findings from a follow-up survey of Waitemata DHB residents, undertaken in October 2013.

The purpose of this follow-up survey is to identify changes in awareness, attitudes, knowledge and involvement with the pilot over time, within the Waitemata DHB area.
