Report on Use of Medical Records to Facilitate Colorectal Cancer Screening
Report on Use of Electronic Medical Records to Facilitate Colorectal Cancer Screening in Community Health Centers
The NCCRT joined with the American Cancer Society and the National Association of Community Health Centers to issue a report entitled, “Use of Electronic Medical Records to Facilitate Colorectal Cancer Screening in Community Health Centers.” The purpose of this study was to gather insights from individuals who use electronic medical records (EMRs) in community health centers about the use of EMRs to facilitate colorectal cancer screening, including for those with a family history of the disease. To meet this goal, the NCCRT commissioned Aeffect Inc. to conduct a series of qualitative interviews with clinicians and technical staff in community health centers (CHCs) across the country. This report provides important recommendations about the barriers, opportunities, and next steps needed to enhance effective use of EMRs in community health centers.
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.
