This map of the United States shows that 7 of 8 projects used organized mailed FIT (Appalachia [comprising Kentucky and Ohio], Chicago, New Mexico, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Oregon, and California). Additionally, 1 project used on-demand mailed FIT (Arizona), 2 projects used opportunistic FIT-DNA (Appalachia [comprising Kentucky and Ohio], Chicago), and 1 project used organized FIT-DNA (Appalachia [comprising Kentucky and Ohio]). ACCSIS consortium members are also shown: Albuquerque Area Indian Health Board; National Cancer institute; Ohio State University; Oregon Health & Science University/Kaiser Permanente Center for Health Research; RTI International; University of Arizona; University of California, San Diego/San Diego State University; University of Chicago; University of New Mexico; University of North Carolina; and University of Oklahoma.


ACCSIS consortium members, research project sites, and mail-based strategies used for promoting CRC screening. Abbreviations: ACCSIS, Accelerating Colorectal Cancer Screening and Follow-up through Implementation Science; CRC, colorectal cancer; FIT, fecal immunochemical test.
