AbstractHTA Core Model for screening technologies is a document that describes a model for assessing screening technologies. It presents the questions that should be considered when assessing screening programs, and the methods needed to answer these questions. It is the third in a series of Core Model applications, prepared by EUnetHTA, and designed for assessment of different types of health technologies; the previous two are on medical and surgical interventions, and on diagnostic technologies. The model enables production of structured HTA information which can be shared by HTA agencies and adapted into local settings. The development of this report was conducted as a part of the EUnetHTA project. It was produced by 68 individuals from 23 HTA agencies in 16 European countries. Responsible organisation and the lead partner of Work Package 4 of EUnetHTA Joint Action was FINOHTA (Finnish office for health technology assessment at THL).
