I'm interested in the role of the FP/GP in follow-up/survivorship care, with a focus these days on colorectal cancer. I'm interested particularly in interventions that will support adherence to follow-up testing. Delay in cancer diagnosis is another interest.

I am the leader of a national research group for primary cancer diagnosis - the pathway from symptom to diagnose. The group investigates cancer awareness and how symptoms are understood and acted upon. The centre initiates intervention studies on diagnostic pathway for patients with unspecific symptoms. Further, the group participates in international collaborative studies and on methodological aspects, especially the measurement of pathway intervals.

Stephen Hunt Taplin

I spent 25 years in clinical practice in the United States while also managing an organized breast cancer screening program in an integrated care system. During that time I also conducted research on implementation. My motivation throughout my career has been how to take what we know in medical care and make it what we do. I am currently the Chief of the Process of Care Research Branch of the Behavioral Research Program within NCI's Division of Cancer Control and Population Sciences.
