Description: This announcement provides funds to recipients to partner with health systems and individual primary care clinics to implement evidence-based interventions (EBIs) to increase colorectal cancer (CRC) screening uptake among applicant defined populations age 50-75 years that have CRC screening rates lower than the national, regional, or local rate. Recipients will: 1) establish partnerships with health systems and primary care clinics to implement at least two of four EBIs recommended in The Community Guide (client reminders; provider reminders, reduction of structural barriers, and provider assessment and feedback); 2) establish partnerships with organizations that provide expertise to support the implementation of EBIs in primary care clinics; 3) conduct a formal assessment of each clinics capacity/readiness to implement EBIs; 4) utilize the clinic assessment to select appropriate EBIs to implement; 5) provide resources to partner clinics to provide and support completion of follow-up colonoscopies after a positive or abnormal screening test; and 6) collect and submit high-quality clinic-level data including baseline and annual CRC screening rates.
