At the end of this online enduring material, participants should be able to:
- Discuss how colorectal cancer is presenting at younger ages and how this has led to recent guidelines recommending screening initiation at age 45 for average risk patients
- Recognize and differentiate between the different colorectal cancer screening modalities and gain knowledge of how to convince our patients
