- Increased colorectal cancer screening rates [ Time Frame: Up to 4 years (study period) ]
Fecal testing completion
The study will fulfill the following aims:
Aim 1: Develop personalized messages (e.g., phone scripts, text messages, patient portal prompts) and define an intervention using boot camp translation to increase colon cancer screening among Latino populations.
Aim 2: Assess the reach, effectiveness, and differences by subgroup (e.g., preferred language) of a three-arm colorectal cancer screening program among Latino FQHC patients, in 2 clinics, through a patient randomized-controlled trial.
In addition to Usual Care, the arms are:
- Automated Prompts—an automated data-driven program for delivering FIT kit prompts (using automated phone calls, text messages, and/or emails) to patients due for colorectal cancer screening.
- Automated Plus Live Prompts—a higher-intensity program using automated, data-driven strategies for delivering FIT kit prompts plus linguistically and culturally tailored live prompts.
Aim 3: Test the spread of the program across additional clinics using a two-arm randomized approach and develop an implementation guide that includes outreach materials, strategies for incorporating patient input, and resources.
