Abstract

The USPSTF gives Colorectal Cancer screening a Grade A recommendation, beginning at age 50 years and continuing until age 75 years. Screening colonoscopies are proven to show dramatic decreased incidence and mortality from colorectal cancer. This project evaluates the percentage of patients at Stowe Family Practice and Community Health Services of Lamoille Valley who are meeting these guidelines. Using chart reviews and patient interviews, the project seeks ways to increase screening rates through provider-patient shared decision making tools and educational materials for the office.
