Blue Star Conversations – May 17, 2023

On May 17th, 2023, the NCCRT’s NCCRT Professional Education & Practice Implementation (PEPI) Strategic Priority Team hosted the latest Blue Star Conversation, an interactive program for NCCRT members and CDC grantees. The latest session highlighted a short presentation by Elizabeth Ciemins, PhD, MPH, MA, Vice President of Research and Analytics at AMGA (American Medical Group Association), on rates of follow-up colonoscopy after a positive stool-based screening test from the recent Jama New Open publication, Rates of Follow-up Colonoscopy After a Positive Stool-Based Screening Test Result for Colorectal Cancer Among Health Care Organizations in the US, 2017-2020. Afterwards, participants discussed potential opportunities and challenges to overcome barriers affecting follow-up colonoscopy.
