Abstract

Important racial differences existed between African Americans and whites regarding the barriers to CRC screening and factors impacting current screening. However, endorsement of a small set of questionnaire items--not race--had the strongest association with being current with screening. Physician recommendation for CRC screening had the strongest association with being current with CRC screening.
