Participants will broaden their understanding of screening.
Participants will broaden their understanding of screening.
What conditions do we screen for in New Zealand? What should we screen for? How do we decide? Is screening even ethical? These questions and others will be explored in a two-day interactive workshop ‘Population screening: the why, what & how?’ at the University of Otago, Wellington in February next year.

The workshop will be led by public health physicians and epidemiologists Dr Caroline Shaw and Professor Diana Sarfati.

Participants will hear new ideas and broaden their understanding of screening across all disciplines in this highly-rated workshop, held every two years.

Other topics to be discussed include how screening programmes are implemented, monitored and evaluated and what’s new on the screening horizon.

The workshop, part of the 20th Public Health Summer School, will be held on 18-19 February 2016 at the University of Otago, Wellington, Mein St, Newtown, Wellington. Early bird registration closes 18 December 2015.
