Determinants of participation to breast cancer screening in the Brussels Region

A poster on breast cancer screening in the Brussels Region

 Sept 2012

On the occasion of the 5th International Epidemiology Congress, organized by ADELF (Association des Epidémiologistes de Langue (française ), EPITER (Association pour le développement de l'Epidemiology terrain) , And ESP / ULB (Ecole de Santé Publique de l'Université Libre de Bruxelles) in Brussels in September 2012, the Observatory for Health and Welfare presented a poster with the title:

  "Crossed spatial analyzes of data from different medical routine administrative sources for the evaluation of organized breast cancer screening program in the Region."

From the finding that the figures relating to breast cancer in the Region show disparities between the municipalities, the objective of this analysis was to help understand and intervene in these inequalities. Various factors that may affect breast cancer and screening practices influence were put through charts and graphs on screen, by examining different hypotheses and to appeal to different routine sources.

This analysis shows that the ultimate confrontation of diverse medical and administrative data from routine sources makes it possible to bring spatial distributions seem paradoxical at first sight. Some logical consistency in image This exercise gives an illustration of the methods of integration of data provided by the Observatory, the ability to execute its policies. Supporting role
