Abstract: This talk will address the behavioural aspects of cancer control, which Professor Turnbull has been researching since the latest 1980s. Her most recent research, which she will discuss here, investigates practical and scalable methods to improve uptake for bowel cancer screening. This NHMRC funded work has been influential in informing the design of the invitational process for the national screening program.
