Survey on Colorectal Cancer Screening and Primary Care Residents (2008)
Colorectal Cancer Screening Education, Prioritization, and Self-Perceived Preparedness Among Primary Care Residents: Data From a National Survey (2008)
Colorectal cancer screening remains underutilized in the United States. We conducted a national survey of colorectal cancer screening education, prioritization, and self-perceived preparedness among resident physicians in Family Practice (FP), Internal Medicine (IM), and Obstetrics & Gynecology (OB/GYN) training programs.
Methods Directors/administrators from 1085 FP, IM, and OB/GYN training programs were contacted by e-mail with a request to forward an invitation to participate in our web-based colorectal cancer screening education survey to all residents in their program. Willing residents submitted responses in anonymous fashion. Data were analyzed using x2 tests and analysis of variance methods.
Blue Star Conversations – February 21, 2024
This Blue Star Conversation featured a case study in the ACS NCCRT’s recently published Tailoring Colorectal Cancer Screening Messaging: A Practical Coalition Guide, and focused on key tangible actions for coalitions looking to reach specific populations and increase colorectal cancer screening in those populations.
2023 Lead Time Messaging Guidebook
This Guidebook is intended to provide you with information and tools to motivate individuals at average and heightened risk for CRC to discuss screening prior to the recommended screening age. Our belief is that this will increase the likelihood that they will prioritize getting screened on-time for CRC.
Tailoring Colorectal Cancer Screening Messaging: A Practical Coalition Guide
This step-by-step guide is targeted at coalitions who are looking to make highly effective campaigns to increase colorectal cancer (CRC) screening rates in their communities, especially for those hardest to reach, illustrated by case studies.
