Promoting Colonoscopy To Referring Networks and Patients

Promoting Colonoscopy To Referring Networks and Patients
The importance of colonoscopy as the only test that can directly prevent colorectal cancer was reinforced recently with the release of the updated US Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) recommendations. Attend the webinar to hear a summary of the recommendations, along with other important aspects of screening and the value of colonoscopy. The ASGE Value of Colonoscopy (VOC) task force has developed educational materials, informational videos and strategies to promote the value of colonoscopy to your patients and to your referring internists. GI units are encouraged to leverage the available resources and tools to join the outreach effort.
