This review concluded that reasonable candidate interventions for increasing uptake of breast, cervical and colorectal cancer screening were identified. These included client reminders, small media, provider audit and feedback and, for breast cancer only, one-on-one education and reduction of structural barriers. This reflects the review results, but potential for reviewer error and bias requires consideration when interpreting reliability.
