Health Care System Factors for Colorectal Cancer Screening

Health Care System Factors

Since June 2016, the USPSTF^1^ has recommended screening for colorectal cancer starting at age 50 years and continuing until age 75 years. Other health care system factors associated with colorectal cancer screening include '''health insurance status''' ([https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC6608696/ Freund et al., 2019]), having a '''usual source of primary care''', and '''visiting a doctor in the past 12 months''' ([https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC6093265/ Hall et al., 2018]). Note: [https://www-doh.state.nj.us/doh-shad/query/builder/njbrfs/ColScrPSTF/ColScrPSTFAA11_.html Custom data views] of the estimated prevalence of adherence to colorectal cancer screening guidelines among New Jersey adults by selected '''sociodemographic and other characteristics''' (including '''health insurance status''', '''having a usual source of primary care''', and '''visiting a doctor in the past 12 months''') can be generated using the New Jersey Behavioral Risk Factor Survey interactive query module. 1.
