Protocol for a health technology assessment of screening for abdominal aortic aneurysm in men

Status: Published on

Following a request from the National Screening Advisory Committee (NSAC), HIQA has commenced work on a health technology assessment (HTA) of screening for abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) in men in Ireland. The protocol outlines the evidence synthesis approach that will be used by HIQA’s evaluation team to complete this assessment.

The NSAC was established by the Minister for Health as an independent advisory committee to play a significant strategic role in the development and consideration of population-based screening programmes in Ireland. At the request of the Department of Health, the HTA Directorate within HIQA undertakes evidence synthesis and provides evidence-based advice to NSAC on behalf of the Minister for Health.
