Strategies to improve colorectal cancer outcomes: update 2007
Gill S, Goldberg RM

Program Audience Primary care physicians Educational Needs Addressed Colorectal cancer is the third leading cause of cancer-related morbidity and mortality in the United States and Canada. Approximately 153,760 people will be diagnosed with colorectal cancer in 2007, and 52,180 will die of the disease. Although current advances in the management of colorectal cancer have lead to improved patient outcomes and prolonged survival, cure remains elusive for the majority of patients. An improved understanding is required of how to maximize treatment response while minimizing toxicity. If improvements in population-based outcomes for colorectal cancer are to be achieved, prevention strategies, including better risk stratification, novel screening modalities, and chemo-prevention, must also be improved. Educational Objectives After participating in this CME activity, primary care physicians should be able to 1. Describe how tumors are staged 2. Discuss initial treatment options for colorectal cancer 3. Review adjuvant treatment options for resected colon cancer 4. Recognize new treatment options for advanced colorectal cancer 5. Identify patients with a familial susceptibility for colorectal cancer
