A Physician-Based Trial to Increase Colorectal Cancer Screening in Chinese (CRC)
The objective of this study is to test whether a culturally-tailored in-office based intervention have impact on increasing Chinese physician's recommendation of colorectal cancer (CRC) screening to their nonadherent Chinese patients.
Special aims are to:
- Evaluate the efficacy of a culturally-tailored physician intervention on increasing non-adherent Chinese American's patients' CRC screening rate.
- Identify factors that mediate or moderate the intervention effects. For example, patients who hold an eastern cultural view or are less acculturated will be more likely to benefit from the intervention than patients who hold a western view or who are more acculturated.
