Kate Dunlop is a full-time PhD candidate undertaking: Implementation research on risk-stratified cancer screening in Australia. Risk-stratified screening provides tailored, personalised cancer screening for the individual rather than the mostly ‘one-size-fits-all’ programs designed for the average person. Kate’s research focus is on
the acceptability and feasibility of this approach for the end-user, particularly general practitioners, their patients and the healthy general public as well as for key expert stakeholders.
Her work is based across different cancer types, in particular melanoma and lung cancer. Kate was previously the Director of the NSW Health Centre for Genetics Education and prior to that at the Cancer Council NSW developing education programs. Her research interests include cancer screening, personal genomic risk information, genetics education and the challenges in their implementation.
