Crossing the Quality Chasm for Men under age 55 (CQC55)

The goal of this research is to improve hypertension control, diabetes control, and colorectal cancer screening rates among younger men within KPNC. We will start by conducting focus groups with Black, Filipino, and Latino men aged 40-55 to identify barriers and facilitators to chronic disease management and age-appropriate cancer screening. During years 3 and 4, we will use focus group findings to develop multi-modal tailored messaging strategies, or physician and staff communication training. We will evaluate these interventions in trials, assessing the impact on HTN control, T2DM control, and CRC screening rates among younger Black, Filipino, and Latino men.
