Perceptions and Practices for Colorectal and Cervical Cancer Prevention and Control in Rural Health Clinics in South Carolina


Providers are aware of current cervical and colorectal cancer screening guidelines and follow recommendations based on patient need and guidance from multiple organizations. Providers reported both patient- and provider-level barriers to cancer screening. Additional technical and material resources (e.g., small media, navigation services, electronic health record report customization) should be provided to Rural Health Clinics to enable the implementation of evidence-based interventions to improve uptake of cervical and colorectal cancer screening.
