Trial of Interventions to Increase Utilization of Colorectal Cancer Screening and Promote Informed Decision Making About Colorectal Cancer Screening Among Hispanic Men and Women


During this first year, the researchers have worked toward identifying factors influencing
initiation of colorectal cancer screening among Hispanic men and women aged 50 and older and
developing an intervention plan using Intervention Mapping, a framework for systematic
health promotion program planning, implementation, and evaluation. The researchers are also
currently in the preliminary stages of developing two promotora (lay health
worker)-delivered interventions: a small media intervention (video, flip chart, pamphlets)
and a tailored interactive multimedia intervention, prior to the actual collection of data.
Thus, although 733 subjects have been approved by the Committee for the Protection of Human
Subjects to be enrolled in this study in the future, no subjects have been enrolled at this
time. Consequently, there have been no adverse events, and since the risks associated with
participating in this study are negligible, the researchers do not anticipate any adverse
events in the future. No modifications have been made to the research since the last review,
other than that the researchers are currently reassessing the need to conduct preliminary
qualitative research as proposed in the original protocol.
