CRC News: July 31, 2020

Dear NCCRT Members and 80% Partners,

We hope you and your families are staying safe and well. We have a few updates to share with you this week.

Seeking COVID-19 & CRC Screening Emerging Best Practices

The COVID-19 pandemic is impacting colorectal cancer screening rates in unprecedented ways (see NCCRT’s recent “Playbook” on reinvigorating CRC screening amidst COVID-19). Our members and partners are eager to learn from each other about the innovative approaches we’re implementing to both continue CRC screening and communicate that screening is still important and can be done safely in the communities we serve. Does your organization have an emerging best practice to share? If so, please share! Examples could include a clinical workflow that ensures patients with an abnormal stool test get prioritized for colonoscopy, a letter from a health plan to members, an emerging plan to implement Flu-FIT in a drive-through setting this fall, and more. Please share your examples through this form and we will share in 80% Blog posts in the coming weeks.

Replay & Slides: Webinar on CRC Screening During the COVID-19 Pandemic

In case you missed it, a replay of the July 23rd webinar, Reigniting Colorectal Cancer Screening as Communities Face and Respond to the COVID-19 Pandemic, is now available. The webinar featured discussions with lead authors of NCCRT’s new report on colorectal cancer screening during the COVID-19 pandemic. The report, which was released on June 30, provides an action-oriented playbook for how NCCRT members, 80% pledged partners, and colorectal cancer screening advocates across the nation can work together to reignite our screening efforts appropriately, safely, and equally for all communities.
