Utilizing an integrated approach that incorporates a strong background in clinical research, clinical experience and public health training, Dr. Schroy's research activities focus primarily on the development, implementation and evaluation of model programs for community-based colorectal cancer control. Current ongoing studies include: (1) exploring the role of shared decision-making as a strategy for increasing patient participation in colorectal cancer screening; (2) developing a risk assessment tool for predicting the presence of advanced neoplasia at screening colonoscopy; (3) evaluating the feasibility and validity of novel colorectal cancer screening strategies such as stool-based DNA testing and virtual colonoscopy; and (4) implementation of quality measures related to colorectal cancer screening.
