Screen to Prevent (STOP) Colon Cancer

The Screen to Prevent (STOP) Colon Cancer project is trying to raise colorectal cancer screening rates in Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHCs). Colorectal cancer is the second-leading cause of cancer deaths. Early detection saves lives, yet too few adults are screened regularly.

The 5-year project is led by scientists and physicians at Kaiser Permanente’s Center for Health Research, Group Health Research Institute, and OCHIN.

Screening rates are particularly low for certain groups of people. Working with FQHCs allows us to deliver our program to those who need it the most. This trial evaluates the effectiveness of our program in real-life practice conditions.
