The aim of the Accelerating Colorectal Cancer Screening and Follow-up through Implementation Science (ACCSIS) Program is to support research to build the evidence base on multilevel interventions to increase rates of colorectal cancer (CRC) screening, follow-up, and referral to care. Funded by the National Cancer Institute Cancer MoonshotSM Initiative, the ACCSIS Program includes five Research Projects and RTI International as its Coordinating Center. The Research Projects include: Oregon Health & Science University and Kaiser Permanente Center for Health Research; University of California San Diego and San Diego State University; University of Chicago; University of Kentucky and The Ohio State University; and the University of North Carolina. Each Research Project focuses on a local population, with local issues keeping screening low and providing opportunities for improvement. Both urban and rural populations are involved, from many regions of the US, using a range of evidence-based interventions to increase implementation of the full CRC screening process.
