CRC News: September 15, 2022

Dear NCCRT Members & 80% Partners,


We hope your fall is off to a great start! We have a very exciting release to share with you today.

Released Today: Newly Updated Steps Guide for Increasing CRC Screening in Primary Care

We are excited to announce the release of the newly updated , a much-anticipated update to the signature NCCRT resource that has been instrumental in helping primary care practices throughout the United States achieve improvements in their colorectal cancer screening rates.


Through a step-by-step format, this newly updated manual provides evidence-based, expert-endorsed strategies to improve colorectal cancer screening rates in primary care practices. The 2022 edition includes:

  • An expanded scope to include all primary care settings
  • Current screening guidelines and new screening modalities
  • Expert-endorsed strategies
  • Samples, templates, and tools
  • Updated literature references

As a companion to the new Steps Guide, we will release ten extensive case studies from diverse and exemplary clinical practices later this fall.

A primary care clinician recommendation is the most powerful influence on a patient’s decision to get screened for cancer.

We look forward to learning about how you use the Steps Guide to increase potentially life-saving colorectal cancer screening in the communities you serve.

Spread the Word: We encourage you to share this new resource widely! Share the promotional video (see below!), retweet from , and to find sample social media posts, template newsletter blurbs, and shareable graphics and animations.
