CDC Announces New Replication Manual for an
Effective Patient Navigation Model to Increase Colonoscopy Screening
The New Hampshire Colorectal Cancer Screening Program (NHCRCSP) patient navigation model has been highly effective in increasing the completion and quality of colonoscopy screening among underserved groups. Patients in this program were 11 times more likely to complete colonoscopy than a comparison group. Given their success, CDC and the NHCRCSP worked together to develop a manual to help others replicate the model. Expanded use of the NHCRCSP model can help reach our shared goal of 80% colorectal cancer screening by 2018.
