Abstract

Data on the public’s reactions to online tailored colorectal cancer (CRC) risk estimates are sparse. We assessed among 560 men and women aged 50–75 with no CRC screening history reactions to online tailored CRC estimated comparative risk (i.e., self vs. other their age and sex). Assessed were reactions to estimate (i.e., repeating back estimate, match between perceived comparative risk and estimate, accuracy and usefulness of estimate, emotional reactions), risk appraisals and screening intentions. 73% of the sample accurately repeated back their estimate; the match between perceived comparative risk and the estimate was lowest among those informed of being at higher risk. Higher estimates were viewed as less useful and evoked more negative emotions. Viewing the estimate as more useful and experiencing more negative emotions were related with higher risk appraisals and, in turn, screening intentions. These data indicate that adults at higher comparative risk resist accepting a higher risk status.
