TitlePolicy Framework for Population Screening for Cancer
Translated TitleBeleidskader Bevolkingsonderzoeken naar Kanker
PubliekssamenvattingHet Beleidskader Bevolkingsonderzoeken naar Kanker (BBK) geeft een overzicht van de wettelijke en beleidsmatige kaders voor de drie bevolkingsonderzoeken in Nederland naar kanker: borst-, baarmoederhals- en darmkanker. Daarnaast beschrijft het de samenwerking en onderlinge verhoudingen van partijen die betrokken zijn bij de voorbereiding, besluitvorming en uitvoering van deze bevolkingsonderzoeken. Op deze manier werken de betrokken partijen optimaal samen. Het Beleidskader is opgeteld door het RIVM en is vastgesteld door het ministerie van Volksgezondheid, Welzijn en Sport (VWS). Het document wordt regelmatig getoetst en zo nodig aangepast aan de actualiteit. <br> <br>Het RIVM ziet er als landelijke regiehouder op toe dat de bevolkingsonderzoeken voor de deelnemers een hoge kwaliteit hebben, en goed bereikbaar en betaalbaar zijn. Op die manier ontstaat een optimaal 'aanbod' voor de deelnemers aan de bevolkingsonderzoeken. Het Beleidskader is een instrument om de regie te voeren. Het vormt ook de basis voor de zogeheten uitvoeringskaders, waarin per bevolkingsonderzoek de precieze wijze waarop en door wie de bevolkingsonderzoeken worden uitgevoerd, is uitgewerkt. <br> <br>De bevolkingsonderzoeken bestaan uit een reeks van opeenvolgende handelingen die door verschillende partijen worden uitgevoerd en gecoördineerd (de uitnodiging voor het onderzoek, het onderzoek zelf, de beoordeling van de uitslag, de communicatie, en de eventuele doorverwijzing). Deze handelingen moeten goed op elkaar aansluiten en efficiënt gestructureerd zijn om de kwaliteit van het bevolkingsonderzoek te waarborgen. <br>
The Policy Framework for Population Screening for Cancer provides an overview of the legal and policy frameworks for the three population screening programmes for cancer in the Netherlands, namely for breast, cervical and bowel cancer. In addition, it describes the cooperation and the various relationships between the parties who are involved in the preparation, decision-making and implementation of the population screening programmes. This optimises the way in which the parties involved can work together. The Policy Framework has been drawn up by the National Institute for Public Health and the Environment (RIVM) and formalised by the Ministry of Health, Welfare and Sport (VWS). The document is regularly checked and updated when necessary to reflect the actual situation. <br> <br>The RIVM has the nationwide coordinating role, meaning that they monitor to ensure that high-quality population screening is provided for the participants and that it is easily accessible and affordable. This creates the optimum 'offering' for those participating in population screening. The Policy Framework is a tool for coordinating the programmes. It is also part of what are known as the 'implementation frameworks' in which the exact method is described for each population screening programme, along with who performs it. <br> <br>The population screening programme consists of a sequential series of actions that are carried out and coordinated by various parties (the invitation to take part in the programme, the investigation itself, the assessment of the results, the communication of the results and any referrals that may be needed). These activities must be aligned with each other well and must be efficiently structured in order to guarantee the quality of the population screening. <br>

Lifetime and baseline alcohol intakes and risk of pancreatic cancer in the European Prospective Investigation into Cancer and Nutrition study.Naudin, Sabine; Li, Kuanrong; Jaouen, Tristan; Assi, Nada; Kyrø, Cecilie; Tjønneland, Anne; Overvad, Kim; Boutron-Ruault, Marie-Christine; Rebours, Vinciane; Védié, Anne-Laure; et al. (2018-03-09)Recent evidence suggested a weak relationship between alcohol consumption and pancreatic cancer (PC) risk. In this study, the association between lifetime and baseline alcohol intakes and the risk of PC was evaluated, including the type of alcoholic beverages and potential interaction with smoking. Within the European Prospective Investigation into Cancer and Nutrition (EPIC) study, 1,283 incident PC (57% women) were diagnosed from 476,106 cancer-free participants, followed up for 14 years. Amounts of lifetime and baseline alcohol were estimated through lifestyle and dietary questionnaires, respectively. Cox proportional hazard models with age as primary time variable were used to estimate PC hazard ratios (HR) and their 95% confidence interval (CI). Alcohol intake was positively associated with PC risk in men. Associations were mainly driven by extreme alcohol levels, with HRs comparing heavy drinkers (>60 g/day) to the reference category (0.1-4.9 g/day) equal to 1.77 (95% CI: 1.06, 2.95) and 1.63 (95% CI: 1.16, 2.29) for lifetime and baseline alcohol, respectively. Baseline alcohol intakes from beer (>40 g/day) and spirits/liquors (>10 g/day) showed HRs equal to 1.58 (95% CI: 1.07, 2.34) and 1.41 (95% CI: 1.03, 1.94), respectively, compared to the reference category (0.1-2.9 g/day). In women, HR estimates did not reach statistically significance. The alcohol and PC risk association was not modified by smoking status. Findings from a large prospective study suggest that baseline and lifetime alcohol intakes were positively associated with PC risk, with more apparent risk estimates for beer and spirits/liquors than wine intake.

Which cancer survivors are at risk for a physically inactive and sedentary lifestyle? Results from pooled accelerometer data of 1447 cancer survivors.Sweegers, M G; Boyle, T; Vallance, J K; Chinapaw, M J; Brug, J; Aaronson, N K; D'Silva, A; Kampshoff, C S; Lynch, B M; Nollet, F; et al. (2019-08-16)
Dietary intake of different types and characteristics of processed meat which might be associated with cancer risk--results from the 24-hour diet recalls in the European Prospective Investigation into Cancer and Nutrition (EPIC).Linseisen, Jakob; Rohrmann, Sabine; Norat, Teresa; González, Carlos Alberto; Dorronsoro Iraeta, Miren; Morote Gómez, Patrocinio; Chirlaque, María-Dolores; Pozo, Basilio G; Ardanaz, Eva; Mattisson, Irene; et al. (2006-06-01)OBJECTIVE: There is increasing evidence for a significant effect of processed meat (PM) intake on cancer risk. However, refined knowledge on how components of this heterogeneous food group are associated with cancer risk is still missing. Here, actual data on the intake of PM subcategories is given; within a food-based approach we considered preservation methods, cooking methods and nutrient content for stratification, in order to address most of the aetiologically relevant hypotheses. DESIGN AND SETTING: Standardised computerised 24-hour diet recall interviews were collected within the framework of the European Prospective Investigation into Cancer and Nutrition (EPIC), a prospective cohort study in 27 centres across 10 European countries. SUBJECTS: Subjects were 22,924 women and 13,031 men aged 35-74 years. RESULTS: Except for the so-called 'health-conscious' cohort in the UK, energy-adjusted total PM intake ranged between 11.1 and 47.9 g day(-1) in women and 18.8 and 88.5 g day(-1) in men. Ham, salami-type sausages and heated sausages contributed most to the overall PM intake. The intake of cured (addition of nitrate/nitrite) PM was highest in the German, Dutch and northern European EPIC centres, with up to 68.8 g day(-1) in men. The same was true for smoked PM (up to 51.8 g day(-1)). However, due to the different manufacturing practice, the highest average intake of NaNO2 through PM consumption was found for the Spanish centres (5.4 mg day(-1) in men) as compared with German and British centres. Spanish centres also showed the highest intake of NaCl-rich types of PM; most cholesterol- and iron-rich PM was consumed in central and northern European centres. Possibly hazardous cooking methods were more often used for PM preparation in central and northern European centres. CONCLUSIONS: We applied a food-based categorisation of PM that addresses aetiologically relevant mechanisms for cancer development and found distinct differences in dietary intake of these categories of PM across European cohorts. This predisposes EPIC to further investigate the role of PM in cancer aetiology.
