July 28, 2015

Jennifer Elston Lafata, Ph.D., has received funding from the National Cancer Institute to develop and evaluate a post physician office visit colorectal cancer screening decision support and assistance tool, e-Assist. The evaluation is designed to provide cross-cutting information on how and in what contexts e-Assist impacts patient’s colorectal cancer screening perceptions, screening intentions, and screening use as well as how to ensure that, if effective, the tool can be implemented in diverse clinic settings.
