Increasing Colorectal Cancer Screening and Promoting Screening Quality: An Action Guide for Engaging Employers and Professional Medical Organizations, Cdc-pdf[PDF-6.1MB] also called the Employers and Professional Medical Organizations Action Guide, is intended to help Colorectal Cancer Control Program (CRCCP) grantees to work with specific types of partners to promote policies, programs, and practices to increase colorectal cancer screening rates and promote high-quality screening services at the community level. Working with employers and professional medical organizations can be an efficient way to reach large numbers of people who may need better access to colorectal cancer screening.
Increasing Colorectal Cancer Screening: An Action Guide for Working with Health Systems, Cdc-pdf[PDF-4.6MB] also called the Health Systems Action Guide, is intended to help CRCCP grantees work with health systems to increase high-quality colorectal cancer screening at the population level. By helping a single health system improve its colorectal cancer screening process, a grantee can reach many people who need to be screened for colorectal cancer. This approach is more efficient than trying to reach people individually.
The State Colorectal Cancer Screening Profiles were developed by CDC’s National Comprehensive Cancer Control Program. They show colorectal cancer screening rates in U.S. states, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico by race and ethnicity, insurance status, age, sex, and age group. They also show and compare percentages of age-eligible screened populations, and provide a snapshot of county-level screening rates in 2014.
This manual provides information and tools to replicate the successful patient navigation model for increasing colonoscopy screening designed by the New Hampshire Colorectal Cancer Screening Program.
