Bridging the Gap: Transforming Knowledge into Action
July 8-12, 2006, Washington, DC, USA
Method: Clinicians and clinic staff will receive training and information about CRC screening, ways to engage patients in discussions about CRC screening, how to increase identification of patients eligible for CRC screening, and ways to increase patient tracking and follow-up in their clinics. Patients will receive information about CRC screening based on the “Screen for Life” campaign developed by CDC. This intervention targets the following CRC screening modalities: fecal occult blood test (FOBT), flexible sigmoidoscopy, colonoscopy, and double contrast barium enema.
Results: This study is in the first phase and results are anticipated in 2009.
