Description of Event:

The purpose of this webinar is to introduce participants to the concepts, tools and resources available from the National Colorectal Cancer Roundtable’s “How to Increase Colorectal Cancer Screening Rates in Practice:  A Primary Care Clinicians’ Evidence-Based Toolbox and Guide,” which is a collection of evidenced-based tools and strategies to help practices improve their screening performance.  The purpose of the Guide is to help practices make sure that every age appropriate patient in their practice gets screened.  Dr. Durado Brooks will walk participants through the Guide.  In addition, Matt Flory of the American Cancer Society, will talk about how the Guide has been useful in local cancer control efforts in Minnesota.  The Guide and related tools can be reached here.
