New JAMA Network Open article, "Patient Attitudes Toward Individualized Recommendations to Stop Low-Value Colorectal Cancer Screening" assesses veterans’ attitudes toward and comfort with cessation of low-value CRC screening. This survey study finds that nearly 1/3 of respondents are uncomfortable with discontinuing screening even when the benefit is low and nearly 1/2 thought age should not be used to decide to stop screening. CBSSM's Brian Zikmund-Fisher is a co-author on the study.
