Compliance to the screening of the colorectal cancer: methodologies for intervention - In March 2005 the Emilia Romagna region started a screening for the colorectal cancer prevention. Over a period of 2 years, all the target population of the region, between 50 and 69 years old, was asked to undergo a screening of their faeces. Within the Cesena Ausl, 36% of the target population replied to the call, against a regional average percentage estimated at 46%. As a result, a co-operation with the 4 local agencies dealing with cancers was started in Cesena Ausl. This was done in order to increase the compliance of the target population and it involved: ACISTOM, ARRT, IOR, LILT and Assiprov. This work was carried out through an analysis of the phenomenon, the organization of conferences, focus groups and other communicative activities for the population. After 2 years of work, the compliance in September 2008 was estimated to have increased up to 48% and is believed to be improving furthermore throughout the implementation of future work.
