- Nurses and midwives may have a higher risk of certain cancers compared with the general population, which is attributed to occupational features. The workforce is also ageing and with age comes an increased risk for cancer.
- Little is known about nurses and midwives’ cancer screening behaviours despite the role of screening in reducing cancer morbidity and mortality.
- By identifying workforce cancer screening behaviours and factors predictive of screening uptake, this study provides information to support development of targeted strategies to promote nurses and midwives’ engagement in routine screening (where appropriate).
