  Purpose

The primary goal of this research project is to conduct a 5-year prospective randomized trial of a theory-based intervention to increase patient completion of colorectal cancer screening (CRCS) among patients ages 50 to 64 years old.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Increase patient completion of colorectal cancer screening (CRCS) among patients ages 50 to 64 years old. [ Time Frame: 6months, 12months, 24 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    6, 12, and 24 months post intervention, medical charts were reviewd to validate self-reported CRCS behavior.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Secondary goals are to increase understanding of factors that predict completion of CRCS and to assess the cost-effectiveness of the intervention. [ Time Frame: 6 months, 12 months, 24 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Survey data were collected at 6,12,and 24 months.

Arms Assigned Interventions
Active Comparator: PC-based tailored intervention Behavioral: Tailored interactive intervention to increasing CRCS
The three arms of the intervention consist of no patient intervention, printed educational materials, or PC-based tailored interactive intervention.Patients in Group 1 will not receive a patient-directed intervention. Patients in Group 2 will receive generic printed educational materials about CRCS in the PEC when they arrive at the KSC Main Campus for their appointment. Patients in Group 3 will receive a tailored interactive PC-based intervention at a freestanding kiosk in the PEC.

Detailed Description:

Specific Aim 1: Identify behavioral, social, and environmental factors associated with CRCS in male and female patients ages 50 to 64 years old in a primary care practice in Houston, Texas.

1.1. Update literature reviews of CRCS adherence. 1.2. Conduct secondary analysis of relevant data from other projects. 1.3. Conduct focus groups with primary care patients to determine their knowledge, attitudes, and beliefs about CRCS and to gather data to use for development of the educational intervention.

Specific Aim 2: Develop a personal computer (PC)-based tailored interactive intervention based on the transtheoretical (stages of change) model to increase CRCS in accordance with American Cancer Society (ACS) CRCS guidelines.

Specific Aim 3: Evaluate the effectiveness of the PC-based tailored interactive intervention for increasing CRCS through a randomized controlled trial.

Specific Aim 4: Analyze the relationship between a number of predictor variables and CRCS completion in order to develop a more complete conceptual framework for understanding screening adherence.

Specific Aim 5: Conduct a cost-effectiveness analysis of the PC-based tailored interactive intervention for increasing CRCS in a primary care setting.
