Dr. Karsten Jørgensen

Dr. Jørgensen has worked with screening for cancer, as well as for other diseases and risk factors, for almost 20 years. He is a co-author of the Cochrane review on breast screening and has worked to ensure that women are provided with information that enables an informed choice about participation.

He has also published extensively on screening elsewhere, e.g. in journals such as BMJ, Lancet, Annals of Internal Medicine, and JAMA. He wrote the chapter on cancer screening for the European Society of Surgical Oncology textbook: “Surgical Oncology” (2nd Ed., 2017). He is an elected member of the Governing Board of the Cochrane Collaboration and a member of the Scientific Committee for the Preventing Overdiagnosis conference. Views presented are his own.
