A Randomized Comparison of Print and Web Communication on Colorectal Cancer Screening

Abstract: Background: New methods to enhance colorectal cancer (CRC) screening rates are needed. The web offers novel possibilities to educate patients and to improve health behaviors, such as cancer screening. Evidence supports the efficacy of health communications that are targeted and tailored to improve the uptake of recommendations.Methods: We identified unscreened women at average risk for CRC from the scheduling databases of obstetrics and gynecology practices in 2 large health care systems. Participants consente… Show more

“…[10][11][12][13][14][15][16][17][18][19][20][21][22] Whether enhancement of sociopsychological factors influences health behaviors is uncertain. 12,13,19,[22][23][24][25][26][27][28][29][30][31][32] Among trials comparing patients receiving sociopsychologically tailored colorectal cancer screening interventions with active control, 15,19,20,22,[25][26][27][28][29][30]33 only some found superior effects of tailoring 19,25,28,29,34 ; in all but 1 trial 34 screening was self-reported, 19,25,28,29 suggesting possible response bias. There is a need to examine further whether objectively measured colorectal cancer screening improves in response to sociopsychologi...…”

“…There have been relatively few studies using a Web-based intervention to promote cancer screenings. Most of these are clinic-based interventions that have focused on colorectal cancer screening [20][21][22] and prostate cancer screenings [23,24]. Despite its value in health education, Web-based educational interventions to improve women's BC screening uptakes have not been conducted with KA women.…”
