This training was created to support health care providers, improve knowledge about cancer survivors’ mental health care, and promote recommended distress screening. Providers can engage in role-play conversations with simulated cancer survivors to try different approaches to discussing mental health concerns identified through distress screening, and make appropriate referrals when indicated. This training also allows providers to get personalized feedback and gain the confidence and skills to lead similar conversations in real life. During the training, providers can complete learning tasks related to distress screening, patient-reported stressors, patient concerns, and referral options.

Using data from the National Health Interview Survey for 2000 through 2015, the authors examined trends in prevalence of cancer screening that adhered to U.S. Preventive Services Task Force recommendations in order to monitor screening progress among traditionally underserved population subgroups. Colorectal cancer screening was the only test that increased during the study period. The authors found disparities in prevalence of test use among subgroups for all tests examined.
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.
