CRCCP 2015–2020 Evaluation Results and Publications
CDC conducted a rigorous evaluation of the CRCCP that was funded from 2015 to 2020. Evaluation results are published in academic journals. The CRCCP Manuscript Summary Series provides key findings for each CRCCP publication.
CDC Evaluation of CRCCP, 2020–2025
CDC is leading a comprehensive evaluation of the CRCCP funded from 2020 to 2025. The evaluation examines how evidence-based interventions (strategies that have been shown to increase colorectal cancer screening) are implemented, changes in clinic-level colorectal cancer screening rates over time, and the cost-effectiveness of some interventions. CDC collects standardized data from all award recipients for each of their partner clinics and leads special studies to answer key evaluation questions. As analyses are completed, results will be shared here.
The Washington State Department of Health received CRCCP funds and partnered with a large federally qualified health center to provide fecal immunochemical test (FIT) kits to patients who were overdue for colorectal cancer screening.
The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment administered a quality improvement initiative in two federally qualified health centers serving populations with low incomes.
Clinic-level colorectal cancer screening rates increased by more than 4% after the first program year.
CDC is evaluating award recipient management of the CRCCP, implementation and sustainability of evidence-based interventions, colorectal cancer screening rate changes over time, and the cost-effectiveness of different evidence-based interventions.
CDC evaluators designed an outcome evaluation to measure changes in colorectal cancer screening rates over time.
