The project involved three phases: (1) planning and adapting; (2) pilot testing; and (3) evaluation focused on increasing use of evidence-based strategies to increase colorectal and/or cervical cancer screening and initiation of timely, appropriate follow-up care and treatment, as applicable, among patients served at Rural Health Clinics (RHCs) in South Carolina.

Throughout the project period, we used a flexible, iterative, and adaptive approach to ensure our efforts maximized existing statewide efforts in cancer prevention and control, built on the assets brought to the table by our partners, were prioritized and considered feasible by our partnering RHCs, and had the potential for sustainability.
