Annual Illinois Colorectal Roundtable Meeting

June 30, 2021
Colorectal cancer (CRC) is the second leading cause of cancer death in the United States and incidence of CRC in Illinois is higher than the national average. Significant disparities exist by race/ethnicity, access to services, socioeconomic status and geographic location. The COVID-19 pandemic has had a detrimental effect on cancer screenings. It is imperative to understand the disparities and their determinants and to identify solutions to address CRC disparities across our state.

Target Audience

This activity is designed for primary care providers, nurses, patient navigators, care coordinators, community health center staff, public health professionals, local health departments, community groups and cancer survivor groups who are dedicated reducing colorectal cancer deaths.

Learning Objectives

At the conclusion of this activity, participants will be able to:
  • State the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on CRC screening rates;
  • Discuss disparities in access and barriers to CRC screenings;
  • List specific strategies for implementing evidence-based interventions in the clinical setting;
  • Identify successes and opportunities of statewide initiatives in addressing CRC disparity;
  • Describe how engagement with different stakeholders can increase CRC screening rates.
