Thanks for featuring our work on R2R for Colon Cancer Awareness Month! Here’s a question for other community members. We’d love to hear your thoughts.
We expected a simple trigger and action model of referral: a high-risk screening test result was the trigger and the referral was the action that followed on immediately. One of the issues we had was a perception that there was no rush to refer. Some clinicians thought it was Ok to leave the genetics discussion for a later follow-up, say at the 12 month colonoscopy check. It was argued that there were no immediate treatment decisions to make on the basis of the result (unlike in say, breast cancer).
What do others think about this?
