Colorectal Cancer Screening Participation Rates Working Group

Purpose:This working group is assessing international comparability of colorectal cancer screening participation rates and identifying a set of similarly defined indicators on participation.

Members: Carrie Klabunde and Verna Mai (Co-Chairs), Carlo Senore, Lea Hagoel-Salomon, Montse Garcia, Jean-Luc Bulliard, Sven Tornberg, Johannes Blom, Gregory Doyle

Activities: The Colorectal Cancer Screening Participation Rates Working Group is assessing how organized colorectal cancer screening programs in different countries define and measure participation in screening, and the comparability of colorectal cancer screening participation measures/indicators across countries. One goal of this effort is to identify a set of indicators on participation that could be defined similarly by all colorectal cancer screening programs, which are in various stages of implementation.
