The Dos and Don’ts of Colorectal Cancer Screening
This newly updated one-page flyer may be used to remind clinicians about some of the dos and don’ts when it comes to colorectal cancer screening. Partners have the option to cobrand the flyer with their organization’s logo. Contact your local American Cancer Society to learn more.
The flyer was updated in March 2022 to reflect the colorectal cancer screening starting age of 45 for average risk patients. Partners have the option to use one of two versions in 2022:
- Age 45: This version references the starting age of 45 with no caveats (for health systems and health plans that are already covering screening at age 45 for all patients).
- Age 45 with 2023 caveat: This version references the starting age of 45 and includes an asterisk that explains that some health plans will not be required to follow the May 2021 USPSTF recommendation that lowered the age from 50 to 45 until 2023 (for health systems and health plans serving patients that may not yet have coverage for screening at age 45).
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.
