Uptake of colorectal cancer screening programmes needs to be improved or at least maintained in order to achieve projected reductions in mortality and morbidity. Understanding the origins of non-participation in screening is therefore important. To explore the beliefs and experiences of individuals who had not responded either to their screening invitation or reminder. A qualitative study using in-depth interviews with non-participants from England's population-based colorectal cancer screening ...

Social surveys and interviews are staple methods within health research. One of the perceived merits of the postal questionnaire is the anonymity it affords to participants, enabling people to provide honest accounts, particularly in relation to sensitive topics. Interviewing can potentially introduce bias to participants9 accounts because of a compulsion to provide socially desirable responses. Here we examine these assumptions through a comparison of questionnaire and interview accounts of the...

Background Early diagnosis is a key focus of cancer control because of its association with survival. Delays in diagnosis can occur throughout the diagnostic pathway, within any one of its three component intervals: the patient interval, the primary care interval and the secondary care interval.

Introduction The UK has significantly poorer cancer survival rates than comparable countries and diagnostic delay is perceived to be a significant contributory factor to this. The RCGP National Audit of Cancer Diagnosis in Primary Care (2009/10) included data on 3655 patients with colorectal and gastro-oesophageal cancer, including free text comments on avoidable delays in diagnosis, as perceived by the participating GPs. The aim of this study was to identify the principal causes of delay, as pe...
