This sociological project aims to understand the sociocultural processes underpinning optimism for the use of testing technologies in healthcare. The Australian national cancer screening programs and routine clinical practice will be used as case studies to determine human decision-making traits in sociological terms. The significance of the research is underlined by strong evidence that Australians' use of tests is growing rapidly, which is contributing to rapidly rising healthcare costs. The intended outcome of the project is increased understanding of the sociocultural factors that influence decision-making and behaviour in healthcare settings, and will ultimately assist in formulating effective social and economic policies.
