CRCCP Evaluation Results and Publications
CDC is conducting a rigorous evaluation of the CRCCP. Evaluation results are published in academic journals. The CRCCP Manuscript Summary Series provides key findings for each CRCCP publication.
The Washington State Department of Health received CRCCP funds and partnered with a large federally qualified health center, HealthPoint, to implement a direct-mail FIT program. HealthPoint provided fecal immunochemical test (FIT) kits to patients who were overdue for colorectal cancer screening.
The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) administered a Clinic Quality Improvement (CQI) initiative in two federally qualified health centers (FQHCs) serving low-income populations.
Clinic-level colorectal cancer screening rates increased by more than 4% after the first program year.
CDC is evaluating grantee 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 CRC screening rates over time.
