The first EU-TOPIA-EAST workshop on key elements of screening

The first workshop of the EU-TOPIA-EAST project, which brought together over 100 participants, took place in Bled between 20 – 21 November 2023. The workshop was aimed at Eastern European and Mediterranean countries that have not yet been able to implement recommended cancer screening programmes in a way that delivers results in public health.
Among the many participants were programme managers, researchers, as well as policymakers. The event was dynamic and composed of a plenary session, followed by workshops and hands-on exercises. The content focused on communicating the key elements of organised screening, methods for identifying barriers to implementation and using a web-based tool to simulate the cost-effectiveness of screening in different countries. We continued the work outlined in the previous EU-TOPIA project, with some new topics added to the programme, including how to prioritise the introduction of new screening programmes.

After the EU-TOPIA-EAST workshop, around 70 participants attended the 2nd Open Day of Slovenian cancer screening programmes (ZORA, DORA, SVIT) in Ljubljana. More information about this can be found HERE.
