Details

This guidance is for abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) screening providers, commissioners and other stakeholders to share learning and good practice in reducing barriers to AAA screening.

The screening quality assurance service (SQAS) and 4 Nations AAA Screening Programmes group review all submissions of best practice and share case studies on the PHE Screening blog.

The case studies are examples of work to reduce barriers and reduce inequality for men invited for AAA screening. We also invite case studies that have not resulted in reduced inequalities as these may help other providers decide what actions to take to address a specific inequality issue.
