The study aimed to capture the lived experiences of disabled people and document the barriers and enablers to participating in screening programmes.
An Advisory Group was set up to inform the development of the study. Members of the Advisory Group included Sage Advocacy, National Disability Authority, Inclusion Ireland, Federation of Voluntary Bodies, AsIAm, Independent Living Movement of Ireland, Irish Deaf Society, National Platform of Self-Advocates, Voice of Vision Impaired, Disabled Women of Ireland, and Physical Impairment Ireland.
We worked with researchers from Dublin City University’s School of Nursing, Psychotherapy and Community Health to complete the study.
Equity is a key priority for us in our strategy, Choose Screening – Together we can make a difference.
We work with communities to reduce inequity in screening and enable more people to take part.
We’ve published a 5-year Strategic Framework to improve equity in screening.
