Session Descriptions & Recordings

80% in Every Community Conference Welcome & Campaign Progress Report

Richard C. Wender, MD, Chair of Family Medicine and Community Health, Perelman School of Medicine, University of Pennsylvania; Chair, NCCRT

Panel Session: The COVID-19 Pandemic & Impacts to Colorectal Cancer Screening

Amidst March 2020, National Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month, medical providers, and healthcare systems across the country halted many “non-essential” healthcare services and procedures in hopes of significantly reducing the spread of COVID-19, including colorectal cancer screening. The action caused immediate and longer-term impacts on our field, including delayed and canceled screenings, missed diagnoses, and a further exacerbation in disparities and burdens felt by under-represented communities – all of which will lead to excess deaths from colorectal cancer. This session will explore how the pandemic affects colorectal cancer screening at different intersections of the healthcare system.

  • Moderator and Presenter: Folasade (Fola) May, MD, PhD, Assistant Professor of Medicine, Director of Quality Improvement, UCLA Health; Veterans Affairs
  • Gastroenterology: Mark Pochapin, MD, President of the American College of Gastroenterology; Gastroenterology Division Director at NYU Langone Health

  • Primary Care: Carmen Guerra, MD, MSCE, FACSP, Vice-Chair of Diversity and Inclusion, Department of Medicine; Associate Director of the Office of Diversity, Abramson Cancer Center; University of Pennsylvania
  • Community Health Centers: Cheryl Modica, PhD, MPH, BSN, Director, Quality Center, National Association of Community Health Centers

*During the Q&A section of this session, some questions and responses included discussion around the role of CT colonography as a screening option during the pandemic. CT colonography remains an important, safe, and recommended screening option during the COVID-19 pandemic. The American College of Radiology (ACR), an NCCRT member organization, provided further clarification to the questions posed during this session. 

Concurrent Session 1: Innovative Strategies to Reach Patients for Colorectal Cancer Screening During COVID-19

This session will move beyond describing the challenges of reaching patients for colorectal cancer screening amidst the COVID-19 pandemic to showcasing innovative healthcare-based solutions. Examples will include the use of animated video education to encourage FIT completion among the uninsured and under-insured; early insights from the Colorectal Cancer Alliance’s new, multi-city Screening During COVID campaign and screening navigation tool; and process recommendations for prioritizing patients for colonoscopy following the resumption of routine endoscopic exams in New York City.

Concurrent Session 2: Early Age Onset Colorectal Cancer Screening Updates

Our understanding of early age onset colorectal cancer (EAO CRC) improves with each passing year. Leading researchers, non-profit organizations, and national agencies have invested considerable time, funding, discussion, and other resources toward coordinating a comprehensive approach to tackling this alarming issue. This session will dive into some of the latest research and trends related to EAO CRC and explore future steps we can take to address this issue.

  • Jordan J. Karlitz, MD, Director, GI Hereditary Cancer and Genetics Program, Tulane University Cancer Center; NCCRT Steering Committee

Panel Session: Systemic Racism & Impacts to Health, Health Care, and Colorectal Cancer

This conversational panel will explore systemic racism’s alarming impact on health, health care, and in turn, colorectal cancer. Join us for this timely and important discussion given the national and community spotlights on how systemic racism affects Black communities following the tragic police killings and racial health inequities resulting from COVID-19 in 2020.

  • Steven Itzkowitz, MD, FACP, FACG, AGAF, Professor of Medicine and Oncological Sciences, Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, NCCRT Steering Committee (Moderator)

This session will showcase evidence-based and emerging best practices for promoting colorectal cancer screening in under-represented communities. Examples will include the use of community theater to raise awareness and promote screening, outreach strategies to reach individuals experiencing homelessness, use of virtual human technology to communicate health messages in diverse populations, and strategies to reach Black men for screening.

WORKSHOP #1
Familial, Hereditary, and Early Age Onset Colorectal Cancer: A Module Designed to Assist Primary Care Clinician’s in the Identification of Individuals at Increased Risk and Facilitate Earliest Possible Stage Diagnosis

 

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 has commissioned this new primary care clinician’s module that 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.  Come get a sneak peek at the preliminary recommendations from this module.

This workshop moves beyond describing the challenges of reaching the underserved to

showcasing innovative solutions, including using systems change to increase CRC screening in a multi-ethnic community; providing an example of how local health departments can team up with academics on community engagement; and going to emergency departments to reach rural residents who don’t have a primary care provider.

WORKSHOP #2
How to Assure Follow Up Colonoscopy for Positive FIT from the Process Side

 

Fecal immunochemical testing is the most commonly used method for CRC screening worldwide. However, its effectiveness is frequently undermined by failure to obtain follow-up colonoscopy after positive test results.  Take a look at what the evidence tells us and get some practical advice for making sure patients get the life-saving follow up they need.
