Abstract

In order to perform screening effectively, countries planning to implement colorectal cancer screening need to: (i) identify roles for different types of health-care professionals; (ii) develop tools for overcoming barriers to effective colorectal screening; (iii) ensure that screening is adequately reimbursed so that the costs of the program are not prohibitive and that providers of screening do not have economic disincentives that would discourage screening; (iv) develop comprehensive quality assurance programs for individuals and centers engaged in colorectal cancer screening; (v) make available data management and follow-up systems that are feasible for use in primary care practice and endoscopy centers; and (vi) provide training opportunities to health professionals and advocates to ensure that they have adequate knowledge and skills for screening and its promotion.
