This project addresses the risk perceptions, surveillance intentions and surveillance behaviors of CRC survivors. Researchers found that risk perception varies widely but that geographic region is a major predictor and that colonoscopy use may reflect better access to care. The Cancer Care Outcomes Research and Surveillance (CanCORS) study is a national multi-site cohort study of CRC patients.
If you're thinking about colon cancer screening, you have a few choices to make. First, is screening right for you? If so, what type of screening should you pick? To help people make both of these choices, the Informed Medical Decisions Foundation has developed a Shared Decision-Making® program called Colon Cancer Screening: Deciding What's Right for You.
