Performance Improvement 2009. What Facilitated or Hindered Start-Up of a Colorectal Cancer Screening Demonstration Program; What Does Starting the Program in a Community Based Setting Cost?


An in-depth evaluation of the Colorectal Cancer Screening Demonstration Program (CRCSDP) is being conducted to inform current program implementation and support decision making about future screening efforts. The CRCSDP was established to explore the feasibility of implementing a national program for the underserved U.S. population and to learn which settings and which program models are most viable and cost-effective. Five sites were funded to provide colorectal cancer screening to low-income men and women, ages 50 to 64 years, who had inadequate or no health insurance coverage for these services. The evaluation is being conducted for two distinct time periods: program start-up and program implementation.
