Screening for Colorectal Cancer: Optimizing Quality (CME)

This free Centers for Disease Control and Prevention continuing medical education (CME) course provides guidance and tools for clinicians on the optimal ways to implement screening for colorectal cancer to help ensure that patients receive maximum benefit.

There are two versions of this course: one for primary care providers and one for clinicians who perform colonoscopy. Continuing education is available for both versions of the course.

The courses have been updated to reflect the latest November 2016 U.S. Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) Recommendation Statement for colorectal cancer screening.

Evaluation: The courses were developed by a group of nationally recognized experts in colorectal cancer screening, including primary care clinicians, gastroenterologists, and leaders in public health programs and research.

Permissions: Made publicly available online through the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
