Endoscopy Nurse Participation in Adenoma Detection Rate During Colonoscopy

2014-08-27 03:13:40 | BioPortfolio


Colorectal cancer (CRC) is the second most common cancer and the fourth leading cause of cancer death in Korea. Colonoscopy with polypectomy decreases the incidence and mortality from colorectal cancer. However, significant lesions can be missed during colonoscopy. Recent retrospective studies have shown that fellow involvement as a second observer may increase adenoma detection rate in colonoscopy.

The aim of this prospective, multicenter, randomized study is to evaluate the impact when endoscopy nurse participate in adenoma detection during screening colonoscopy. The primary outcome measure is the adenoma detection rate (ADR).

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The minimum acceptable patient care, based on statutes, court decisions, policies, or professional guidelines.

Organization of medical and nursing care according to the degree of illness and care requirements in the hospital. The elements are intensive care, intermediate care, self-care, long-term care, and organized home care.

Medical care provided after the regular practice schedule of the physicians. Usually it is designed to deliver 24-hour-a-day and 365-day-a-year patient care coverage for emergencies, triage, pediatric care, or hospice care.

An interval of care by a health care facility or provider for a specific medical problem or condition. It may be continuous or it may consist of a series of intervals marked by one or more brief separations from care, and can also identify the sequence of care (e.g., emergency, inpatient, outpatient), thus serving as one measure of health care provided.

Endoscopic examination, therapy or surgery of the luminal surface of the colon.
