Survival impact of the Australian National Bowel Cancer Screening Programme
The Australian National Bowel Cancer Screening Program (NBCSP) has been offering age‐based faecal occult blood testing since 2006. With the rapid expansion of this programme, the NBCSP will ultimately offer biennial screening to all 50–74 years old by 2020. Participation rates remain low. Previous reports have described an increased proportion of earlier stage cancers in patients with NBCSP‐detected tumours.
