2 Key Points ➤ Approximately 45% of incident colorectal cancers occurred in less- developed regions around the world, representing 9–10% of cancers in those regions. Fifty-two percent of deaths from colorectal cancer occurred in these "less-developed" regions. • Many regions do not have mass or even opportunistic screening, and even within regions with mass screening subpopulations may not have access to screening. ➤ In recognition of the resource limitations in these regions and to improve the quality of care where resources are limited, ASCO has established a process for development of resource-stratified guidelines, which includes mixed methods of evidence-based guideline development, adaptation of the clinical practice guidelines of other organizations, and formal expert consensus.
