Summary:

Colorectal cancer (CRC) is the third-leading cause of cancer deaths in the U.S. While a majority of patients are diagnosed before their disease has metastasized, a fifth of patients have advanced disease at the time of diagnosis. Early detection and screening have been shown to significantly reduce CRC mortality, and screening is widely recommended for average-risk adults beginning at age 50 years, (as well as earlier for individuals at higher risk). Since the mid-1990s, the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force, American Cancer Society, and other groups have recommended several modalities for screening: fecal occult blood testing (FOBT), flexible sigmoidoscopy, colonoscopy, and barium enema. Recent years have seen the addition of newer screening technologies, including stool DNA, computed tomographic colonography, and capsule endoscopy.

By the end of the session the participant will be able to:

  • Describe present the current practice guideline recommendations with respect to colorectal cancer screening, including colonoscopy preparation, and apply them to patient cases
  • Identify the treatment modalities currently available for management of mCRC and apply them to patient cases using evidence-based medicine
  • Evaluate a treatment plan for a specific patient with mCRC to optimize safety, efficacy, and tolerability, suggesting modifications for improvement
  • Describe the challenges and barriers to care associated with treating patients with mCRC
