This guidance is to support abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) screening providers, commissioners and other partners in identifying and reducing inequalities in AAA screening.
It includes information and resources on how to:
- identify inequalities
- reduce inequalities
- share learning
It also includes links to other resources. In this publication we use the term man to include trans women and non-binary individuals who have the same genetic risk of AAA as men and should therefore also consider accessing screening. See AAA screening information for trans and non-binary people.
The screening quality assurance service (SQAS) and 4 Nations AAA Screening Programmes group review shared learning submissions and case studies are published on the PHE Screening blog. These case studies are examples of initiatives that aim to reduce barriers and reduce inequalities for people invited for AAA screening. Shared learning examples can include initiatives that did not achieve the desired objective but are still useful to share.
