The data (2002-2016) from the Regional Health Service of Emilia-Romagna on the access to the mammographic services in the Local Health Authorities (AUSLs) of the region (data accessed as generalized civic access) allowed (poster at AEA Meeting 2020) to identify the different choices (YES screening; NO screening) for the early detection of breast cancer undertaken by the women in Bologna and in the other AUSLs in Emilia-Romagna after the solutions adopted after 2010 to deal with the problems of waiting lists and the control of spending for the services of early detection of breast cancer, redirecting the services toward the screening of public health(poster at AEA Meeting 2017). To better understand what happened in the early detection of breast cancer in Bologna after 2010, women residing in the Bologna AUSL who underwent at least one mammogram in 2010 in spontaneous access or in scheduled screening were taken into consideration and the choices they made in the following years up to 2016, the last available year, were analyzed (paper at WEAI meeting March 2021).

Abstract

The data (2002-2016) from the Regional Health Service of Emilia-Romagna on the access to the mammographic services in the Local Health Authorities (AUSLs) of the region (data accessed as generalized civic access) allowed (poster at AEA Meeting 2020) to identify the different choices (YES screening; NO screening) for the early detection of breast cancer undertaken by the women in Bologna and in the other AUSLs in Emilia-Romagna after the solutions adopted after 2010 to deal with the problems of waiting lists and the control of spending for the services of early detection of breast cancer, redirecting the services toward the screening of public health(poster at AEA Meeting 2017). To better understand what happened in the early detection of breast cancer in Bologna after 2010, women residing in the Bologna AUSL who underwent at least one mammogram in 2010 in spontaneous access or in scheduled screening were taken into consideration and the choices they made in the following years up to 2016, the last available year, were analyzed (paper at WEAI meeting March 2021). Thus in 2016 it appears that 58,1% of women who had had one or more mammograms through spontaneous access in 2010 progressively did not have any more mammograms (at least within the National Health Service), neither in spontaneous access nor in scheduled screening. Now in this new paper we examine in depth the different behavioral patterns of women with respect to early detection of breast cancer in Emilia-Romagna, and in particular in Bologna, and we study their different reactions to changes in the offering. We, therefore, want to compare our results with the new debate taking place in Italy (National Screening Observatory, Italian Group for Mammographic Screening, Surveillance PASSI of the Istituto Superiore di Sanità) on the early detection of breast cancer and on the organized screening.
