Screen to Prevent (STOP) Colon Cancer
The Screen to Prevent (STOP) Colon Cancer project works to raise colorectal cancer screening rates in Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHCs) in California, Oregon, and Washington State using fecal immunochemical testing (FIT).
The five-year project evaluates the effectiveness of the program in real-life practice conditions and is led by scientists and physicians at Kaiser Permanente’s Center for Health Research, Group Health Research Institute, and OCHIN. The project is funded by the National Institutes of Health Common Fund Health Care Systems (HCS) Research Collaboratory program.
Visit the Materials section of the website to find a variety of downloadable educational materials, including wordless instructions for multiple FITs, reminder and results letters, clinic posters, and workflow job aid templates.
Evaluation: The project began with a pilot study that found significant improvements in FIT completion rates for clinics in the STOP intervention. Visit the Findings section of the website to learn more.
