The Community Preventive Services Task Force (CPSTF) recommends interventions that use small media to increase colorectal cancer screening by fecal occult blood test. Small media include videos and printed materials like letters, brochures, and newsletters. These interventions provide information that’s tailored to individuals or intended for general audiences, and the interventions may inform and motivate people to get screened for cancer. CPSTF found insufficient evidence to determine whether interventions that use small media increase colorectal cancer screening by flexible sigmoidoscopy, colonoscopy, or double contrast barium enema.
