|Screening and Early Diagnosis|
Health checks and periodic health examinations aim for prevention and early diagnosis of diseases in people who do not yet present symptoms. For many of these checks the evidence base is lacking, and many other established quality criteria for screening are not met. The experience in the Netherlands in developing quality criteria for health checks will be exchanged with other member states and initial consensus on pan-European quality criteria will be developed. The WP will establish links with the European Science Advisory Network for Health, European Network for Health Technology Assessment, and with the European Network on Cancer Screening and Prevention Programmes.
