ABSTRACT
This article focuses on a study related to colononscopy completion rates. A recent BSG/intercollegiate audit of colonoscopy practice has highlighted the problem of low colonoscopy completion rates. The publication of a coded league table of colononoscopy completion rates, was associated with reported improvements, which appear sustained over time. researchers in the study conclude that further objective measures of quality assurance in colonoscopy could be introduced using a coded league table technique.
