In 2004, an estimated 146, 940 people will be diagnosed with colorectal cancer and 56,730 will die from the disease. The majority of these deaths could be prevented since colorectal cancer (CRC), when discovered early, is highly treatable. Population screening for CRC has the potential to reduce the mortality rate by 50%. Screening that leads to removal of adenomatous polyps, the precursors to CRC, has been found to decrease incidence of this disease by 75% to 90%. Unfortunately the prevalence of CRC screening remains low. Nationally, only 50% of adults aged 50 or older reported having had any screening test in the recommended intervals. Tailored telephone counseling, one specific type of telehealth intervention, has demonstrated considerable promise as an intervention that motivates people to change health behaviors. We have developed a tailored telephone counseling intervention designed to promote CRC screening among relatives of persons diagnosed with colon polyps. The tailored telephone counseling intervention, delivered by trained nurses, contains individually tailored messages for each participant based on baseline assessment of their individual demographics, CRC risk factors, Health Belief Model constructs of perceived CRC risk, perceived benefits, barriers, self-efficacy, and stages of change for fecal occult blood testing, sigmoidoscopy and colonoscopy. A larger, ongoing randomized trial will compare the efficacy of the tailored telephone intervention with a mailed generic print intervention. In this study, we will examine recall and satisfaction with the tailored telephone counseling versus a generic mailed brochure. Data were collected at three months post-intervention via structured telephone interviews. Group differences will be analyzed using t-tests for continuous variables and chi-square analyses for categorical data. Results from this study will advance nursing knowledge of telehealth interventions as a health promotion and disease prevention tool.
