The American College of Preventive Medicine  is pleased to share the Strategic Roadmap for Accelerating the Uptake of the United States Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) Colorectal Cancer (CRC) Screening Guidelines for Implementation by Preventive Medicine Physicians.

With funding from Exact Sciences, ACPM has developed a strategic roadmap for Preventive Medicine physicians to accelerate the implementation of the recently revised USPSTF guidelines for CRC screening, specifically within historically marginalized communities. 

The strategic roadmap leverages current recommendations and momentum generated by the National Colorectal Cancer Roundtable, the President’s Cancer Panel (“Closing Gaps in Cancer Screening: Connecting People, Communities, and Systems to Improve Equity and Access,” 2022), the American Cancer Society, findings from two convenings held with national subject matter experts and others driving strategic and clinical decision-making as it relates to colorectal cancer prevention to outline strategies and key initiatives to activate Preventive Medicine physicians to implement these guidelines more consistently and effectively, particularly within minoritized/vulnerable populations.
The strategic roadmap is organized around calls to action within the following professional segments. These segments are based on sectors of the healthcare delivery continuum in which Preventive Medicine physicians work or have influence.

  • Individual Practicing Preventive Medicine Physicians
  • Healthcare Delivery Systems & Clinical Settings
  • Community-Based Clinical Settings
  • Public Health Departments & Organizations
  • National Policy- & Advocacy-Focused Organizations
  • Insurance Providers
  • Academia & Medical Education
