Table 4 Stepwise multinomial logistic regression model for factors associated with hypothetical acceptance of a future CRC blood test in rejectors of the FIT test (n = 1026). Results are presented as ORs with 95% confidence intervals

From: To do or not to do – a survey study on factors associated with participating in the Danish screening program for colorectal cancer

  Would you consider screening for CRC next time you get the offer if the FIT test is replaced by a blood sample taken at your GP?
