    Focus and purpose: To provide a forum for the exchange of ideas, knowledge, information and best practice for those interested in the application of behavioural medicine to the primary and secondary prevention of cancer, together with cancer screening. By bringing together researchers, clinicians, third sector organisations and public/patient representatives to facilitate the exchange of information on diverse aspects of cancer prevention and screening research, and cutting across different behaviours, the SIG aims to enhance networks and collaborations and, ultimately, accelerate progress towards and improvement in cancer outcomes.
