Presentation Summary

Screening helps identify cancer or pre-cancer in patients who have no symptoms of the disease. Colorectal cancer screening is one of the most effective tools used to prevent colorectal cancer.  The primary care provider needs to know the risk categories associated with colorectal cancer screening, which test to select for which patient and how to talk to patients about screening.   This presentation discusses the difference between surveillance and screening, and current screening tests and their application.  Finally, it will offer strategies for discussing the benefits of screening with patients.
