'Re: Sharing evidence about pros and cons of screening
The most extensive work on modeling in prostate cancer screening has been done by Ruth Etzioni at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Institute, Seattle, Washington.

Her work provides the underpinning for current guidelines by the American Urological Association:
I think this request is not inappropriate on part of your context experts as long as they understand that the modeling estimates will be shrouded in major uncertainty. I have no doubt that if you make the “correct” assumptions, you can make PCA screening a very attractive proposition, buying into “expert’s” potential intellectual and financial COIs.
I will also not “fix” the issue that to date no trial has yet to show an impact on overall survival/mortality.
