Abstract: Population-based screening has been accepted as the best tool for preventing breast cancer. Many women cohorts are left out from screening sessions on a regular basis. Increasing screening attendance through well-coordinated interventions has been accepted as a norm for such screening programme. The need for more resources for making such interventions within the primary care domain has held back many such initiatives. A case study on increasing screening attendance through prediction techniques to identify women likely to miss screening and initiate opportunistic intervention, is discussed in this paper. A new intervention research framework and a questionnaire-based survey are also presented.
