This project aims to implement a multi-level group randomized trial, delayed intervention that includes components targeting clinics, providers, patients, and the community to increase colorectal cancer (CRC) screening, follow-up, and referral-to-care among patients age 50-74 in 12 counties in Appalachian Kentucky and Ohio. The 12 counties will be assigned to one of two study groups (early vs. delayed) and outcome measures (rate of CRC screening) will be obtained from clinic-level electronic health record data and a county-level behavioral assessment telephone survey. The hypothesis for the project is that the multi-level intervention will increase the clinic and county level CRC screening rates.
