Accelerating Colorectal Cancer Screening and follow-up through Implementation Science (ACCSIS)
The Cancer MoonshotSM was designed to accelerate efforts to prevent, diagnose, and treat cancer and achieve 10 years of progress in 5 years.
BLUE RIBBON PANEL RECOMMENDATION G: Expand use of proven cancer prevention and early detection strategies
Reduce cancer risk and cancer health disparities through approaches in development, testing and broad adoption of proven prevention strategies.
ACCSIS is improving colorectal cancer screening, follow-up, and referral for care among populations that have low colorectal cancer screening rates. ACCSIS focuses on underserved groups, including racial and ethnic minority populations and people living in rural or difficult-to-reach areas.
The two-phase projects in this program are designing multilevel interventions that increase colorectal cancer screening and healthcare delivery, as well as developing guidelines for scaling-up and implementing these multilevel interventions to reduce the burden of colorectal cancer. The first phase of these projects focuses on pilot studies that demonstrate the feasibility and potential effectiveness of multilevel interventions at increasing colorectal cancer screening and follow-up. The second phase involves testing the implementation and impact of the multilevel interventions in target populations with low colorectal cancer screening rates.

The ACCSIS Program is comprised of one Coordinating Center and three Research Centers. The Coordinating Center supports organizational, administrative, scientific activities of the Program. The Research Centers develop and implement multilevel interventions.
