Colorectal Cancer Screening: A Provider's Guide to Improve Screening Focusing on Medically Vulnerable Populations - Enduring

Colorectal cancer screening rates are low within low SES and among African-American, Latino and in several Asian-American groups, in part due to lack of awareness,  fewer provider recommendations, lack of access to care, and underutilization of Stool-based tests by providers. 

Colorectal cancer (CRC) is the second leading cause of cancer-related deaths in California. African-Americans have 20% greater risk and 40% higher death due to CRC than general population. Incidence rate in most subgroups has decreased; however, it has increased among younger persons and Korean-Americans. Despite lifesaving CRC screening, African-American, Latino and in several Asian-American groups (Pacific-Islanders, Korean, Chinese), CRC screening is abysmally low.  Antelope (AV-SPA1) and San Gabriel Valley (SGV-SPA3) fare worse than other SPAs in Los Angeles County. In AV-SPA1 and SGV-SPA3, 51.5% of eligible adults are in compliance with CRC screening compared to 56.3% in Los Angeles County and national rates (68.8%).
