While colorectal cancer is preventable, one in three Americans has not been screened. During this Learning and Action event, a patient and healthcare professional panel will share insights and tools to engage the patient, ensure proper follow-up or treatment and create a sustainable system for colorectal cancer screening. Share in a patient experience from the initial outreach to positive health outcome and capture best practices and tools used to achieve sustainable policy and systems change.
All healthcare professionals are welcome and encouraged to attend.
Upon completion of the WebEx, participants will be able to:
- Recognize the impact of CRC screening from the patient perspective
- Explain the value of using patient navigators on patient follow-through
- Identify effective evidence-based interventions for increasing preventive screenings
- Describe the process for developing sustainable policy and systems change
