Health Promotion Projects on CRC
A randomized controlled trial evaluating two e-health interventions (presence/absence of motivational interviewing) in increasing colorectal cancer screening among people aged 50-60 with moderate risk
CRC is locally prevalent, costly, and fatal. FIT screening can evidently prevent CRC and reduce its mortality. The local coverage is currently low to moderate for those recommended to receive FIT (~10-25%). Coverage is only moderate in countries providing free FIT to all suitable individuals as cost is not the sole determinant. We are developing evidence-based sustainable/scalable interventions and a model to increase the coverage, choosing among a lower cost and a more elaborated version versus the control. Such interventions(s), if found efficacious, will enhance the effectiveness of future governmental policy of providing free FIT and reduce CRC prevalence.
