Trial of breast density notification at BreastScreen Queensland Sunshine Coast Service
From August 2023 for a period of several months, there will be a research study happening at BreastScreen Queensland Sunshine Coast Service. This randomised controlled trial on the psychosocial and health service impacts of breast density notification is being undertaken by BreastScreen Queensland in partnership with The University of Sydney. Some clients who consent to participate in the trial will be provided with information about breast density and advised to contact their GP if they have any questions.
The trial is being funded by the National Health and Medical Research Council and the National Breast Cancer Foundation.
