Colorectal Cancer Screenings During COVID-19

DATE:  Tuesday, December 1, 2020
TIME:  1:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m. (Pacific)

Colorectal cancer is the third leading cause of cancer death in men and women combined. Cancer screenings saw a dramatic decline at the onset of the pandemic, up to a 90% decrease, which will result in over 10,000 unnecessary cancer-related deaths over the next decade. Many health systems continue to try and get back on track with preventative health measures, including cancer screening.

COVID-19 further magnified the health disparities we know exist in our communities. There are still too many communities with lower colorectal cancer screening rates – rural communities, certain racial and ethnic communities, low income communities. Join this session and learn more about breaking down screening barriers during the pandemic. This webinar will focus on colorectal cancer screening 2.0: mailed FIT programs and alternative low-contact FIT distribution methods, as well as follow-up colonoscopy after positive FIT. Mailed FIT programs are an evidence-based practice to increase colorectal cancer screening within health systems. Diagnostic colonoscopies complete the screening process after a positive FIT and are necessary to providing quality patient care.

  • Explain the decline of CRC screening rates due to COVID-19, the importance of getting back on track, and the need to prioritize specific populations; 
  • Review evidence for mailed FIT as an evidence-based intervention and describe follow-up after a positive FIT; and,
  • Identify successes and challenges implementing a mailed FIT program within an FQHC.
