The Equity of bowel cancer screening: An epidemiological and qualitative study is a collaborative research endeavour between Flinders University, Adelaide University, and the Spencer Gulf Rural Health School. The project seeks to explore issues associated with access to bowel cancer screening for Indigenous peoples. The impetus for the project evolved from preliminary findings offered by the National Bowel Cancer Screening Program (NBCSP) which showed Indigenous peoples had lower than expected participation rates in the NBCSP. It is anticipated that the current research project will identify the barriers and facilitators to bowel cancer screening for Indigenous peoples. The results of this research project will be used to inform the development of interventions that facilitate increased participation of Indigenous peoples in bowel cancer screening.
