Navigation from Community to Clinic to promote CRC screening in Underserved Populations

Regular screening facilitates the early diagnosis of colorectal cancer (CRC), the second leading cause of cancer death, and contributes to the reduction of CRC morbidity and mortality, but the hardest-to-reach patients are still under-screened. This study will merge and incorporate two primary elements of successful interventions tested by the co-PIs to examine dissemination outcomes; we will test effects of “community-to-clinic navigators” using a tailored navigation protocol to guide individuals from an especially hard-to-reach, multicultural, and underinsured population into primary care clinics and, subsequently, track the effects of this intervention through a clinic navigation program to complete CRC screening.
