Webinar: Risk Assessment and Screening Toolkit to Detect Familial, Hereditary and Early Onset Colorectal Cancer
Tuesday, June 19, 2018
3 to 4 p.m. Eastern
Registration is open for our next webinar on Tuesday, June 19 at 3:00 p.m. ET, during which we’ll introduce our soon-to-be released resource for primary care, Risk Assessment and Screening Toolkit to Detect Familial, Hereditary and Early Onset Colorectal Cancer.
Given the growing concern of the NCCRT about poor screening for those with a family history of CRC and the growing problem of early onset CRC, the NCCRT’s Family History and Early Onset Task Group has worked with the Jackson Laboratory to develop a new primary care clinician’s toolkit. The new toolkit aims to improve the ability of primary care clinicians to systematically collect, document, and act on a family history of CRC and adenomas polyps, while also educating clinicians on the need for more timely diagnostic testing for young adults who present with alarm signs or symptoms of CRC and ensuring that those patients receive a proper diagnostic work up. The primary speaker will be Emily Edelman, MS, CGC, Associate Director, Clinical & Continuing Education, The Jackson Laboratory, the lead developer of the toolkit.
The webinar is open to NCCRT members, 80% partners, CDC grantees, ACS Health Systems and Communications staff, and new partners interested in getting engaged in colorectal cancer screening efforts.
Advance registration is required.
