Among Latinos, a fast growing and underserved population, Colorectal Cancer (CRC) is the third leading cause of cancer death in men and in women. Compared to non-Latino whites, Latinos are less likely to be diagnosed with localized CRC and more likely to be diagnosed with advanced stage disease. Of the recommended CRC screening tests, a colonoscopy allows for both the detection and removal of precancerous and cancerous polyps. Although screening colonoscopies can detect and prevent CRC, more than half of Latinos have not received a screening colonoscopy within the recommended time frame (one screening colonoscopy per ten years). The purpose of this study is to develop and begin to test an electronically-delivered motivational interviewing progressive web application (e-MI app), called Motívate. The Motívate app will be offered in both English and Spanish to patients who self-identify as Latino/a/x, after they receive a referral for a screening colonoscopy.
