In an effort to prevent colorectal cancer, the third most common cancer in men and women in the United States, endoscopists and other members of the gastroenterology care team must work in concert to precisely identify, lift, and resect precancerous lesions in the gastrointestinal (GI) mucosa at the earliest stages to achieve optimal outcomes. These are possible only if clinicians adhere to validated practice guidelines, specifically those that address endoscopy quality indicators. A critical component of the care plan is clear communication and collaboration between patient and clinician. Effective communication in the practice setting helps ensure that the patient adheres to the bowel preparation procedures in advance of a potential colonoscopy and, importantly, provides an opportunity to review the clinical and lifestyle risk factors that may contribute to the development of lesions in the GI mucosa.
After completing the activity, the participant should be better able to:Evaluate the spectrum of chromoendoscopic staining techniques to optimally identify and assess adenomatous polyps and other precancerous lesions in the gastric mucosaInstitute effective submucosal lifting methods to ensure complete endoscopic mucosal resection of polyps in the GI tractImplement quality-improvement tools to increase adherence to oral staining products and improve overall endoscopy services
