Clinicians' perceptions of the benefits and harms of prostate and colorectal cancer screening.
The researchers sought to understand clinicians’ perceptions of the benefits and harms of two screening tests (colonoscopy and prostate-specific antigen (PSA) testing) that differ in their balance of potential benefits and harms. Clinicians perceived PSA testing to have a greater likelihood of harm as well as a lower likelihood of lengthening life relative to colonoscopy.
