Tools & Resources – 80% by 2018 Communications Guidebook: Recommended messaging to reach the unscreened
This Guidebook is based on new market research from the American Cancer Society with guidance from the NCCRT Public Awareness Task Group. The Communications Guidebook is designed to help educate, empower and mobilize three key audiences who are not getting screened for colorectal cancer.
- The newly insured
- The insured, procrastinator/rationalizer
- The financially challenged
The goal of the Guidebook is to share what we know about reaching these hard-to-persuade groups using new tested messages.
The 2017 Communications Guidebook (289)–newly updated in 2017–includes additional templates, tools and customized resources. (Note: Some versions of Internet Explorer create errors in the document. If you experience problems please use an alternate browser, such as Firefox or Google Chrome.)
The Hispanics/Latinos and Colorectal Cancer Companion Guide and Asian Americans and Colorectal Cancer Companion Guide–new in 2017–introduce market research about the unscreened from these populations and include tested messages in Spanish and several Asian languages.
