What is the background of the project?
DESCRIPTION:Colorectal cancer is the third leading cancer in men and the second in women, in Brazil. Despite the high disease burden, little is know about the prevalence of colorectal neoplasia in an asymptomatic population in Brazil. Characterizing the clinical of a screening population and assessing baseline prevalence of colorectal neoplasia will assist the Barretos Cancer Hospital screening, recently implemented, and a future national colorectal cancer prevention strategy. AIM:To implement a data system to track participants in the CRC (Colorectal Cancer) screening program and measure screening outcomes. USED TECHNIQUES: The student will do literature search on online database, such as Scielo, PubMed and SCOPUS, compare statistics and interpret the whole data which will be collected. Furthermore, he will do practical activities to help the tutor in the implementation of an organized community-based colorectal cancer screening. After it, the student will learn about how to write articles and reviews
