Screening Guideline Update from American Cancer Society – May 30, 2018
Colorectal Cancer Screening Guideline Update – May 30, 2018
On May 30, 2018, the American Cancer Society released a new colorectal cancer screening guideline, published in CA: A Cancer Journal for Clinicians. The new guideline recommends that adults at average risk for colorectal cancer start regular screening at age 45. The guideline was changed, based in part, on new data showing rates of colorectal cancer are increasing in younger populations. As a result, the American Cancer Society updated the guideline to save more lives by finding colorectal cancer early, when treatment is more likely to be successful and by detecting and removing polyps, which contributes to the prevention of colorectal cancer.
This webinar assists NCCRT members and 80% partners by answering common questions, reviewing the evidence-base behind the guideline, and discussing how it will apply in a clinical setting.

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.
