    2019 Colorectal Cancer Screening Messaging Guidebook: Recommended Messages to Reach the Unscreened

    In 2018, the NCCRT and the American Cancer Society researched screened and unscreened populations to better understand and address screening disparities. The goals of the market research were to:

    • Measure general awareness of colorectal cancer screening methods.
    • Understand the rationale, attitudes, and motivations for being screened or not.
    • Analyze priority populations such as adults aged 50-54, rural dwellers, and the marketplace insured.
    • Identify logical and emotional drivers that could encourage screening.
    • Use the drivers to create and test messages that would motivate unscreened individuals.

    This guidebook shares the findings and recommendations gathered from that research and is further designed to help in the education, empowerment, and mobilization of those who are not getting screened for colorectal cancer. Our hope is that our partners can take this research and the recommended messaging provided to strengthen your own communications campaigns, creating resources that resonate with the target audiences even more by using your own creativity, innovation and spokespersons.
