Poster sessions are particularly prominent at academic conferences. Posters are usually one frame of a powerpoint (or similar) presentation and are represented at full resolution to make them zoomable.
Colorectal cancer (CRC) is a common form of cancer and the second-leading cause of cancer-related mortality in a number of developed countries. Five-year survival in the UK is less than 50%. Within England, invitations for CRC screening are sent once every two years to men and women aged 60 to 74 by the national screening programme. Uptake of CRC screening is associated with reduced mortality, but little is known about the impact of having a long-term condition (LTC) on uptake. Our objective was to examine the association between having LTC and uptake of population-based screening for CRC.
