To explore sociodemographic factors, anthropometric measurements, and non-communicable disease risk factors as predictors of screening behaviours in Brunei Darussalam. Data from the National Non-communicable Diseases survey (STEPS) involving 3808 participants were extracted. Multivariable regression analyses were applied to explore factors associated with screening behaviours. Highest prevalence of cardiovascular disease screening was blood pressure (81.0%, 95% CI: 79.7, 82.2), followed by glucose measurement (64.9%, 95% CI: 63.3, 66.4) and cholesterol monitoring (63.4%, 95% CI: 61.9, 65.0). For prevalence of cancer screenings, pap smear was the highest (56.5%, 95% CI: 54.3, 58.6), followed by mammography (11.3%, 95% CI: 10.0, 12.7), colonoscopy (7.9%, 95% CI: 7.1, 8.8) and prostate (6.5%, 95% CI: 5.4, 7.8). Marital status, age, tobacco use, co-morbidity and family history were significant predictors of cardiovascular screening behaviours. Whereas family history, age, lifestyle factors, glucose levels, fruit and vegetable intake, work status, and knowledge on cancer were significant predictors of cancer screening behaviours. Identifying specific predictors of screening behaviours could help policymakers introduce tailored guidelines and effective approaches for screening and early detection programmes. Causal relationships and barriers to screening, including healthcare provider’s role and health service utilisation, are highly recommended in future studies.

Background: Breast cancer is the third leading cause of death from cancer among females in Macao, but little is known about local practice of breast cancer screening. The study aims to evaluate breast cancer screening behaviors and to identify the predictors of insufficient knowledge and attitudes towards breast cancer and its screening among female residents. Methods: This was a cross-sectional study conducted from April to June 2016 in Macao. Quota sampling of women completed the modified Chin...

Background There is a lack of data about hypertension screening in low- to middle-income countries. The primary objective of this study was to determine the prevalence and predictors of blood pressure (BP) screening in Karachi, Pakistan. The secondary objective was to identify ways to improve effective BP screening practices among the population at risk. Methods This cross-sectional study was conducted from November 2016 to May 2017. The sample population consisted of 2039 residents of Karachi w...

Background —Familial hypercholesterolemia (FH) and other extreme elevations in low-density lipoprotein cholesterol significantly increase the risk of atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease; however, recent data suggest that prescription rates for statins remain low in these patients. National rates of screening, awareness, and treatment with statins among individuals with FH or severe dyslipidemia are unknown. Methods —Data from the 1999 to 2014 National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey w...

: Screening may be effective for reducing deaths due to prostate cancer. The aim of this study was determine the prevalence and determinants influencing prostate cancer early detection behaviors based on the theory planned behavior (TPB). In this cross-sectional study, conducted in the west of Iran, a total of 250 men aged 50 to 70 years old were randomly selected to participate. Of these, 200 (80%) signed the consent form and voluntarily agreed to take part. A structured questionnaire based on ...

Currently 23 million U.S. adults have been diagnosed with diabetes (1). The two most common forms of diabetes are type 1 and type 2. Type 1 diabetes results from the autoimmune destruction of the pancreas's beta cells, which produce insulin. Persons with type 1 diabetes require insulin for survival; insulin may be given as a daily shot or continuously with an insulin pump (2). Type 2 diabetes is mainly caused by a combination of insulin resistance and relative insulin deficiency (3). A small pro...

OBJECTIVES: This study aimed to investigate the factors related to cancer screening behaviors (CSB). METHODS: The 2014 Korean Community Health Survey used for analysis. The dependent variable was CSB, and the independent variables were demographic, health behavioral, and regional factor. Propensity score matching (PSM) used to control health behavior and regional factors, which were influencing CSB. For statistical analysis, chi-square test and logistic regression analysis used. RESULTS: Logisti...

Background Hypertension (HT) is a major risk factor, and accessible and effective HT screening services are necessary. The effective coverage framework is an assessment tool that can be used to assess health service performance by considering target population who need and receive quality service. The aim of this study is to measure effective coverage of hypertension screening services at the provincial level in Thailand.
