Abstract

Concordance with the current follow-up care and surveillance protocol for patients with early-stage CRC was substantially low, with older age, black race, and local-stage disease being the significant predictors of low concordance. Further research assessing barriers to access to guideline-recommended survivorship care is crucial to improve long-term outcomes among these patients.
