Abstract
Background: Only 45% of patients visiting their primary care physicians (PCP) in Switzerland are up‐to‐date with CRC screening. Many patients are never offered the choice of screening and having PCPs discuss screening could increase screening rates.
Objective: Within a systematic data collection on CRC screening practices, we aimed to determine the proportion of 50‐75‐year old patients eligible for screening, who had a discussion on screening, who chose to be screened, which method they chose and how many refused. We further aimed at describing variation in care between PCPs.
