Other Information

The NCRI SPED Group aims to:

  • facilitate and aid the development of protocols for studies involving screening, prevention and/or early diagnosis
  • encourage successful and efficient delivery of screening, prevention and early diagnosis research, e.g. by optimising feasibility assessment and configuration of Network support
  • advise the NCRI Groups on issues affecting screening, prevention and early diagnosis research (e.g. through hosting regular themed meetings)
  • maintain an overview of screening, prevention and early diagnosis research activity in the NCRI Groups portfolios
  • encourage collaboration across the NCRI Groups where appropriate (e.g. identify other relevant NCRI Groups to participate in a screening, prevention and/or early diagnosis trial)
  • work closely with the NHS Cancer Screening Programmes, Primary Care Research Network (PCRN) and other relevant bodies.
