CRC Screening Network Practice and Policy Survey

The aim of the Colorectal Cancer Screening Network Practice and Policy survey was to gather information from members of the National Colorectal Cancer Screening Network and their contacts about practices and policies and challenges associated with colorectal cancer screening delivery. The survey and report were commissioned by the NCCRT and conducted by the Colorado School of Public Health.

This Network was chosen to serve as the survey population due to the geographic distribution of its members and its composition of public health professionals working within the field.

The two components of the project are:

• Exploring issues around medical providers and access to medical care; and

• Exploring issues around state and local practices and policies related to insurance and colorectal screening.

Portions of the survey were informed by the NCCRT Policy Action Task Group Strategy Session of March 2011.  Many thanks to those of you who came to that meeting and took the time to help us discuss and prioritize key issues.
