Katelyn Collins

Katelyn  joined the team in 2022 as a Research Assistant. In 2023 Katelyn commenced her PhD through the University of Southern Queensland. Her project focuses on advance notification – that is, providing information about an upcoming opportunity to participate in screening ahead of time – as an intervention to improve participation in the National Bowel Cancer Screening Program. Specifically, Katelyn’s thesis aims to clarify the theoretical mechanisms (or “active ingredients”) of advance notification interventions, to understand why this strategy can effectively improve adherence to screening. Katelyn is supervised by a team based at the University of Southern Queensland and Cancer Council Queensland, including Adjunct Associate Professor Belinda Goodwin, Dr Larry Myers, and Dr Michael Ireland.
