Q. Can you suggest an effective approach to improving colorectal cancer screening?
A. According to The Kaiser Permanente Medical Centre, Northern California,colorectal cancer can be screened by using a systematic approach. This has been proven to be effective in improving colorectal cancer screening in a medical group or elsewhere.
Systematic screening is done by using a combined screening model offecal immunochemical test (FIT) and colonoscopy made available through primary-care physician referral. It has beenproven that a program that offers patients a fecal screening option is likely to have higher participation than a program that offers only colonoscopy.
