I CAPE GAZETTE, Tuesday, April 12 - April 14, 2005 - 27 Delaware initiates new plan to fight colorectal cancer What can be done to reduce cancer incidence and mortality in Delaware? After a year of re- search and testimony by Delawareans affected by cancer, it was clear to the Delaware Can- cer Consortium (formerly the Delaware Advisory Council on Cancer Incidence and Mortality) that lack of information, confu- sion about when to be tested and bureaucracy discourage people from getting screened for colorec- tal cancer. The consortium took action by creating a network of CRC (colorectal cancer) screen- ing program coordinators: med- ical professionals to work in the local cOmmunity to assist patients in navigating the testing process. The CRC coordinators are housed within five hospitals in Delaware and work with commu- nities and organizations in the surrounding area according to the specific needs of those communi- ties. Free services provided by the CRC coordinators include working with patients to make sure that they have access to test- ing, support and guidance through the testing process, and prompt clinical evaluation and follow-up to positive testing. "Having staff available to guide people through a system that can sometimes be complex is a big step toward getting more people screened," said Dr. Stephen Grubbs, chairman of the Delaware Cancer Consortium's Colorectal Cancer Committee (CRCC). "We know that just fill- ing out the paperwork, which is part of the process, can be over- whelming and frustrating. Our goal is to eliminate barriers and streamline the process so more people get screened." The team of CRC coordinators is available to help Delawareans throughout the state. The Sussex coordinator is Cathy Ward, RN, of Beebe Medical Center. She may be reached at 645-3100, Ext. 5131. "Screening is the key to finding and treating colorectal cancer. In fact, it's 90 percent curable when detected early, ' said Grubbs.
