The 2015 International Cancer Screening Network (ICSN) Triennial Meeting will take place on June 2–4, 2015, at the De Doelen International Congress Centre in Rotterdam, The Netherlands. Cosponsored by the U.S. National Cancer Institute (NCI) and Erasmus Medical Center, Department of Public Health, the meeting focuses on collaborative research that is aimed at identifying and fostering efficient and effective approaches to cancer control through population-based screening.
Meeting topics will include:
- Individualized screening
- Implementation and lessons learned from organized programs in middle-to-high-resource countries
- Optimizing benefits and minimizing harms; evidence on screening effectiveness
- Screening in low-resource countries and populations
- Informed decision making in cancer screening
The ICSN is a voluntary consortium of countries that have active population-based cancer screening programs. The consortium was established in December 1988 as the International Breast Cancer Screening Database Project during an international workshop involving representatives from 11 countries. The consortium has since grown to encompass more than 30 countries and now addresses colorectal, cervical, and other types of cancer screening.
The ICSN is dedicated to collaborative research aimed at identifying and fostering efficient and effective approaches to cancer control worldwide through population-based screening. It does not address efficacy or use clinical trials data. Participation in the ICSN is open to any country that has initiated a population-based cancer screening program.
