The free "ePrognosis: Cancer Screening" app aims to help trainees and practicing clinicians guide conversations with elderly patients of whether to start, stop, or continue breast cancer and/or colorectal cancer screening. The app is created around the idea that estimating prognosis is a critical aspect in the decision to recommend for or against cancer screening, as there is a long "lag-time to benefit" for these interventions. The objective is to focus cancer screening on those most likely to benefit from these medical interventions, and conversely, avoid screening in those who are unlikely to live long enough to see a benefit but will be exposed to immediate harms.
Tool developed by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) to assist primary care clinicians to identify the screening, counseling, and preventive medication services that are appropriate for their patients. Based on current recommendations of the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF).
