Cancer Screening Adherence through Technology-Enhanced Shared Decision Making (CSATS)

This seminar will discuss the development and pilot testing of an effective behavioral intervention model to improve patient adherence to colorectal cancer (CRC) screening that is feasible and sustainable in community practices by linking a computer prompt/reminder system with a behavioral intervention that combines decision aid and risk assessment with physician recommendation to enhance Shared Decision Making (SDM).
