It is hypothesized that primary care colonoscopists are able to achieve benchmarks in
colonoscopy quality including cecal intubation and adenoma detection rates and serious
adverse event rates.
This prospective study is the first in depth analysis of the quality of colonoscopic
procedures performed by primary care physicians at a provincial level in Canada.
In addition, the APC Endo study is the first to directly examine both the quality of
colonoscopy and patient satisfaction in the same study.
