Study Summary

This study aims to test the effectiveness of a patient navigation program for increasing colonoscopy completion for colorectal cancer screening, among rural populations. The study will partner with geographically disparate primary care organizations to recruit patients aged 45-75 to the study. The patient navigation program will be delivered through a community organization. This project is critical in advancing our knowledge of the effectiveness of patient navigation for increasing colonoscopy in this patient population as well as for understanding factors that can support long term implementation and sustainability of effective interventions.
