Abstract

This article presents a shared view from practitioners with special interests in diagnosing and managing primary brain tumors in both primary and secondary care, in adult and pediatric disciplines; it examines the complexity of identifying whether it would be of benefit and feasible to try to identify those with brain tumors earlier, how this could be achieved and what evidence exists to justify such an approach. The experience of the HeadSmart Campaign in childhood brain tumor, using awareness as a method for driving service change, is used to illustrate how diagnostic practice can be changed across the primary and secondary care interface. This article highlights the importance of focusing upon the needs of patients with primary brain tumors as they represent a significant set of life-threatening and disabling diseases with significant implications for cancer and palliative services.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 2. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 31 March 2015.
All research outputs
#6,649,216
of 11,200,191 outputs
Outputs from CNS Oncology
#34
of 105 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#71,104
of 149,451 outputs
Outputs of similar age from CNS Oncology
#1
of 1 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 11,200,191 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 38th percentile – i.e., 38% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 105 research outputs from this source. They typically receive more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 7.9. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 62% of its peers.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 149,451 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 49th percentile – i.e., 49% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 1 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has scored higher than all of them
