Session title

Scottish Cancer Foundation Lecture

Session synopsis

Beating cancer with behavioural science

In this presentation I will discuss novel approaches to increasing uptake of cancer screening programmes to help beat cancer. As a behavioural scientist my research focuses on what people think, feel and do in relation to cancer screening and how we can better support people to engage with cancer screening and reduce inequalities in uptake.
