Despite innovative programs to increase colorectal cancer (CRC) screening amongst people >50 years of age, such the National Bowel Cancer Screening Program (NBCSP), current screening rates are low.

This project consists of three sub-studies designed to explore the acceptability and feasibility of methods to increase participation in CRC screening in general practice (GP) patient populations.The program of works aims to develop and test innovative approaches to improving CRC screening rates among primary care attendees. The project is a first step in developing an intervention which aims to improve CRC screening among average risk persons aged 50-75 and strongly aligns with the HMRI’s Public Health program focus on cancer prevention and focus on increasing CRC screening.
