Reducing Canadian Colorectal Cancer Mortality Through Screening

In 1998, following discussion with experts and stakeholders in Canada, Health Canada established a National Committee on Colorectal Cancer Screening comprised of members from provinces and key organizations from across the country. The Committees mandate was to explore the scope and issues surrounding population-based colorectal cancer (CRC) screening, and to develop a set of final recommendations. During its 2 years, the Committee examined evidence from randomized controlled trials (RCTs) and statistical modeling. The Committee also reviewed recommendations/reports from other countries which had undertaken similar evaluations, and information from expert opinion. Throughout the process, the Committee members were encouraged to identify issues or gaps in data/knowledge for which they required more information to formulate the final set of recommendations. (A companion document, Technical Report for the National Committee on CRC Screening, presents the technical information that was considered over the 2 years). The National Committee came to a consensus and developed its recommendations for population-based CRC screening in Canada.
