American Cancer Society has lowered the recommended screening age for colorectal cancer to age 45

Can you suggest an effective approach to improving colorectal cancer screening?

A. According to The Kaiser Permanente Medical Centre, Northern California,colorectal cancer can be screened by using a systematic approach. This has been proven to be effective in improving colorectal cancer screening in a medical group or elsewhere.

Systematic screening is done by using a combined screening model offecal immunochemical test (FIT) and colonoscopy made available through primary-care physician referral. It has beenproven that a program that offers patients a fecal screening option is likely to have higher participation than a program that offers only colonoscopy.
