Cancer Council Victoria is undertaking a research study to examine how COVID-19 has impacted cancer screening behaviours and delays to screening participation in Victoria.

The aim is to better understand the effects of changing patterns of health service access on perceptions, barriers and enablers of cancer screening in the context of COVID-19. Ultimately this work will inform strategies to overcome the challenges presented to improve cancer screening participation and service delivery across Victoria.

To do this, this research project will hold semi-structured interviews with 5 to 8 general practitioners. The interviews will be conducted via video conferencing (with or without video) at a time that suits you.

We anticipate that the interview will take between 45 minutes and one hour. Participants will be reimbursed $150 for their time.
