Colon Cancer Clinical Trial
A Patient-centered Intervention Using Technology to Reduce Colorectal Cancer Disparities in Primary Care
The purpose of this proposal is to test the efficacy of a patient-centered, tailored message intervention delivered via virtual technology for increasing colorectal cancer (CRC) screening within guidelines among racial/ethnic minority and rural patients. This protocol focuses on the clinical portion of grant NCI 1RCA207689-01A1
Patients (N=3,000) will be recruited via a secure, clinical data warehouse to complete a patient-randomized test of the efficacy of the intervention for promoting initial and repeat FIT testing. Patients identified as eligible will be contacted through MyChart to test a web-based, culturally-sensitive virtual human intervention for CRC screening. The web-application will provide information to encourage CRC screening. Therefore, this study is a minimal risk study.
