Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    What is the current CDC goal for the rate of colorectal cancer screening?

    • A.

      75%

    • B.

      80%

    • C.

      85%

    • D.

      90%

    Correct Answer
    B. 80%
    Explanation
    The current CDC goal for the rate of colorectal cancer screening is 80%. This means that the CDC aims for 80% of eligible individuals to undergo colorectal cancer screening. Screening is important for early detection and prevention of colorectal cancer, as it can help identify precancerous polyps or early-stage cancer when treatment is most effective. Achieving a screening rate of 80% would significantly contribute to reducing the burden of colorectal cancer and improving overall public health.

    The digital rectal is a good screening exam for colorectal cancer.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The digital rectal exam is not a good screening exam for colorectal cancer. While it can help detect abnormalities in the rectum and lower part of the colon, it is not sufficient on its own to screen for colorectal cancer. Other screening methods such as colonoscopy or stool tests are more effective in detecting colorectal cancer at an early stage. Therefore, the statement is false.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    The Patient Centered Medical Home model criteria provide several evidence-based strategies  that will raise screening rates if applied to colorectal cancer screening.  These include the following.  (Check all that apply)

    • A.

      Patient Registries

    • B.

      Patient Reminders

    • C.

      Age/Risk Flow Sheets

    • D.

      Referral Tracking

    • E.

      Text Messages

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Patient Registries
    B. Patient Reminders
    C. Age/Risk Flow Sheets
    D. Referral Tracking
    Explanation
    The Patient Centered Medical Home model criteria provide evidence-based strategies that can increase screening rates for colorectal cancer. Patient registries can help keep track of patients and ensure they receive the necessary screenings. Patient reminders can help remind patients to schedule and attend their screenings. Age/risk flow sheets can help determine which patients are at higher risk and need to be screened. Referral tracking can help ensure that patients are referred to the appropriate specialists for screenings. Text messages can also be used as a reminder tool for patients.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    The in-office stool blood test is an adequate screening method for colorectal cancer.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement is false because the in-office stool blood test is not an adequate screening method for colorectal cancer. While it can detect the presence of blood in the stool, which may indicate the presence of cancer, it is not a definitive test and can produce false-positive or false-negative results. Therefore, additional diagnostic tests such as colonoscopy are necessary to confirm the presence of colorectal cancer.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    It is better to provide people with options for CRC screening than to recommend only one test.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Providing people with options for CRC screening is better than recommending only one test because different individuals may have different preferences, risk factors, or medical conditions that may influence their choice of screening method. Offering a variety of options allows individuals to make an informed decision based on their personal circumstances, increasing the likelihood of participation and early detection of colorectal cancer. This approach also acknowledges the variability in screening effectiveness, cost, and invasiveness among different tests, ensuring that individuals can choose the option that best suits their needs.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    What percent of individuals over age 50 are currently up to date on screening for colorectal cancer in Pennsylvania?

    • A.

      48%

    • B.

      52%

    • C.

      60%

    • D.

      63%

    Correct Answer
    D. 63%
    Explanation
    The correct answer is 63% because it indicates that a majority of individuals over age 50 in Pennsylvania are up to date on screening for colorectal cancer. This suggests that a significant portion of the population is taking proactive measures to prioritize their health and undergo regular screenings for early detection and prevention of colorectal cancer.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    There are now more people who present in the early stages of colorectal cancer than in later stages of CRC in Pennsylvania.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The statement is true because it suggests that there is an increase in the number of individuals who are being diagnosed with colorectal cancer at an early stage in Pennsylvania. This implies that more people are seeking medical attention and getting screened for colorectal cancer, leading to early detection and potentially better treatment outcomes. It is a positive trend as early-stage detection often results in higher survival rates and improved quality of life for patients.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    Only physicians should present the options for colorectal cancer screening to patients?

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Physicians are not the only healthcare professionals who can present the options for colorectal cancer screening to patients. Other healthcare providers, such as nurses or physician assistants, can also provide this information and discuss the available screening options with patients. It is important for patients to have access to a range of healthcare professionals who can provide them with accurate and comprehensive information about their healthcare options.
