Based on existing literature relating to the barriers and facilitators of medical advice seeking, an a priori investigation of the following items selected from the HCS databank were assessed: Socio-demographic and lifestyle characteristics, i.e. age, gender, education, marital status, country of birth, household income, retirement, private health insurance status, tobacco or alcohol use; Clinical characteristics i.e. general practice visits per year, previous cancer diagnosis (excluding CRC), body mass index, and co-morbidity (e.g. high cholesterol, hypertension, asthma, diabetes); and Psychosocial characteristics i.e. physical health, assessed using the physical health component summary score (PCS) on the short form health survey (SF-36) [55] and mental health, assessed using the Kessler Psychological Distress Scale (K-10) [56]. The PCS is a physical health summary score aggregated from the physical functioning, role-physical, bodily pain and general-health scales on the SF-36 [57]. Predictors ascertained from respondents at the time of survey completion included: trigger for seeking medical advice, symptom characteristics, first degree relative diagnosed with CRC, family history of CRC discussed with doctor, and ever received screening advice from doctor.
