Through the efforts of several task groups, the NCCRT advances initiatives that focus on provider education/practice implementation, systems change, public education, health policy, quality, and health equity issues. By working together, we leverage the expertise of the NCCRT membership to create products that benefit our partners and other external stakeholders in the fight against colorectal cancer. At the NCCRT Annual Meeting each fall, the task groups identify needs and opportunities to address gaps in research, programs, activities, and services relating to colorectal cancer. The NCCRT then prioritizes projects to address these needs and opportunities, in collaboration with the Steering Committee and in alignment with our strategic plans.

What types of resources does the NCCRT produce?
NCCRT resources include practice implementation guides, communications tools, policy briefs, among others. Visit the Resource Center to explore NCCRT resources.

Who are NCCRT resources designed for?
Resources developed by the NCCRT are intended to assist key actors in the fight against colorectal cancer, including professionals in primary care, specialty care, public health, health plans, employers and community settings, among others.

How are new resources developed?
The NCCRT works closely with relevant task group chairs and members to provide input and feedback throughout the resource development and review process. The NCCRT also forms advisory groups, comprised of task group members and non-member experts in the relevant field, to provide input and advice. Some resources are developed with the assistance of contracted authors, consultants or researchers.
