New Summary Statements Related to Cancer Prevention and Early Detection

Health-evidence.ca proudly releases 35 new summary statements related to cancer prevention and early detection. Summary statements provide an overview of research syntheses and are divided into five distinct sections: 1) an overview of the review content including details of the findings, the population, the interventions evaluated, and outcomes; 2) the quality of the review; 3) the significance of the health issue/problem for the Canadian public health system; 4) a summary of the results and implications for policy and practice; and 5) additional relevant sources of quality evidence and resources. The majority of the summary statements have been written from systematic reviews of strong methodological quality.

Topic Areas

  • Cancer Screening
  • HPV-Cervical Cancer Prevention
  • Risk Factors (Physical Inactivity, Nutrition, Tobacco, Obesity)
