Clinical Preventive Medicine
- Timely follow-up of abnormal tests is critical to the effectiveness of cancer screening, but may vary by screening test, healthcare system, and sociodemographic group.
- Recent colorectal cancer screening studies focus on optimizing adherence. This study evaluated the cost effectiveness of interventions using electronic health records (EHRs); automated mailings; and stepped support increases to improve 2-year colorectal cancer screening adherence.
- Editors’ Note: Following the creation of a mission statement for AJPM in 1995, we chose to select Associate Editors in each of the four main categories outlined in the statement: prevention science, policy, education, and practice, with the later addition of an Associate Editor to represent international preventive medicine.
- Many trials have tested different strategies to increase colorectal cancer (CRC) screening. Few describe whether participants are representative of the population from which they are recruited.
