Do Patients With Colorectal Cancer Understand That Their Family is at Increased Risk?


1. The primary physician of patients with colorectal cancer will be contacted and asked
permission to contact their patient to discuss his or her understanding of familial
risk before patient is contacted.

2. A letter will be sent to all patients prior to being contacted, notifying them that all
identifying information will be kept confidential and they may decline to participate
at any time.

3. Patients will be called and asked a series of questions about their understanding of
familial risk of colon cancer, the need for early screening and where they learned what
they know. If the patient has lacking knowledge they will be educated.

4. Each patient will be sent informational brochures about colon cancer after the phone
survey.

5. Six months later, the patients will be contacted again and asked a series of questions
about their understanding of familial risk of colon cancer and the need for early
screening to access how much impact the informational brochures had on their knowledge
of cancer risk. Patients will be asked one additional demographic question about the
highest level of education that they have completed.
