This report card provides a brief, at-a-glance view of all National Bowel Cancer Screening Program (NBCSP), BreastScreen and National Cervical Screening Program (NCSP) indicators by Primary Health Network (PHN) using the latest available data.

Links are included for indicators that have dynamic data display information available.

National Bowel Cancer Screening Program

The NBCSP aims to reduce the morbidity and mortality from bowel cancer by actively recruiting and screening the target population for early detection.

The data presented here are reported against the new NBCSP indicators. The NBCSP indicators measure program performance for people invited to participate in screening and are consistent with the five Australian Population Based Screening Framework steps. For further details on the development process and technical specifications of the NBCSP indicators, see National Bowel Cancer Screening Program documentation.

BreastScreen Australia

BreastScreen Australia aims to reduce illness and death from breast cancer through an organised approach to the early detection of breast cancer, using screening mammography to detect unsuspected breast cancer in women.

The data presented here are reported against the BreastScreen indicators and are consistent with the five Australian Population Based Screening Framework steps. For further details on the BreastScreen indicators, see BreastScreen Australia data dictionary: version 1.1.

National Cervical Screening Program

The NCSP aims to reduce cervical cancer cases, as well as illness and death from cervical cancer in Australia, through an organised approach to cervical screening aimed at detecting and treating high-grade abnormalities before possible progression to cervical cancer.

The data presented here are reported against the NCSP indicators and are consistent with the five Australian Population Based Screening Framework steps. For further details on the NCSP indicators see the National cervical cancer prevention data dictionary version 1: working paper.
