Screening rates for colorectal cancer are low in many American Indian and Alaska Native communities. Direct mailing of a fecal immunochemical test (FIT) kit can address patient and structural barriers to screening. Our objective was to determine if such an evidence-based intervention could increase colorectal cancer screening among AI/AN populations.

The combination of screening and HPV vaccination could prevent up to 93% of cervical cancers. Still, gaps remain. Women at the highest risk are often not screened and HPV vaccination rates among U.S. adolescents remain low. Please watch this session of Public Health Grand Rounds to learn about advances in screening and vaccination efforts and what can be done by communities across the country.

You Call the Shots is a series of interactive, web-based immunization training courses that present practice-oriented immunization content in a step-by-step, self-study format. This module is the eighth in the series and focuses on HPV and its related vaccines. At the conclusion of the session, the participant will be able to describe HPV, list the groups at highest risk, identify those for whom routine immunization is recommended, and describe the HPV vaccine schedule and contraindications.

Colorectal cancer is the second-leading cause of cancer death in the United States. Using evidence-based interventions (EBIs) to increase colorectal cancer screening could save many lives. CDC’s Colorectal Cancer Control Program (CRCCP) provides a unique opportunity to study EBI adoption, implementation, and maintenance. Upon completion of this activity, participants will be able to evaluate the status of colorectal cancer screening in the United States and assess the implementation of EBIs to promote higher rates of colorectal cancer screening.

Effective collaboration between public health and the health care system is essential for connecting medical and community health–related resources and improving population health. We investigated the linkages between local health departments and primary care clinics in Nebraska. Linkages focused on the control and prevention of chronic diseases and on traditional public health programs, including screening for cancer and other chronic diseases, vaccinations, worksite wellness programs, home visits, clinic and medication assistance referrals, health message development, electronic health records data analyses, staff education, and improvements in policies and procedures. Upon completion of this activity, participants will be able to describe collaborations and barriers to collaboration between health departments and clinics in Nebraska.

The webinar is part of an ongoing series of educational presentations by experts in reproductive and pediatric environmental health. These presentations focus on the impact of environmental exposures to chemicals on human health at the vulnerable stages of in utero and pediatric development. This presentation will include an overview of ethylene oxide (EtO), an explanation of the change in its carcinogenicity potency rating, a history of the exposure to EtO of the residents in Willowbrook, Illinois, and recommendations to health care providers caring for exposed residents.
These videos provide guidance and tools for clinicians on the optimal ways to implement screening for colorectal cancer to help ensure that patients receive maximum benefit. There are two versions of this course: one for primary care providers and one for clinicians who perform colonoscopy. Continuing education credit is no longer available.
