Epidemiologic Screening Technics

Brief notes on Screening Technics                        :

  • Epidemiologic screening refers to the process of testing a population
    that does not show symptoms of a particular condition to identify individuals
    who have the condition, so they can receive early treatment.
  • It’s a proactive public health strategy aimed at early detection & intervention to reduce the incidence and/or mortality of health problems within the population.
  • Screening is the testing of an asymptomatic population for a particular condition in order to identify those who have the condition so that they can be treated early.
  • Common examples include cancer screenings like mammograms and pap smears, routine hypertension screening, and annual tuberculosis and HIV screening among healthcare workers.
  • The purpose of screening is to identify people in an apparently healthy population who are at higher risk of a health problem or a condition, so that early treatment or intervention can be offered.
  • This helps reduce the incidence and/or mortality of the health problem or condition within the population.
  • Screening is distinct from diagnostic testing, which is performed
    on symptomatic patients to determine what condition they have.
  • Screening aims to find diseases before symptoms appear,
    allowing for earlier and potentially more effective treatment.

We wish you’ll gain necesary knowledge and skills on Community Screening Technics as a tool for Philosophy for understanding Community Health Problems..

With respect and love. 03rd May 2024, Ankara
