In an effort to reduce the incidence and mortality rates related to colon cancer, the New Brunswick Cancer Network (NBCN), a branch of the Department of Health, has been working with a multi stakeholder Steering Committee to plan and develop a population-based Colon Cancer Screening Program (CCSP) for New Brunswick. This organized colon cancer screening program will be launched in 2014 beginning with Health Zone 2. The CCSP is expected to be fully implemented province-wide by 2016.
Through the work of the Steering Committee and as the first phase to implementing a Provincial Screening Program, we are pleased to provide the New Brunswick Colon Cancer Screening Program Clinical Practice Guidelines and Algorithm. These Guidelines will assist health care providers and the population in optimizing colon cancer screening in New Brunswick.
