Updated guideline for colorectal screening, surveillance and recall


On behalf of Dr. Paul Mullins, Medical Lead, NH Colon Screening Program and Dr. Zeinab Moinfar, NH Cancer Screening Lead:

Northern Health has updated the guideline for colorectal screening, surveillance, and recall and developed new algorithms for colorectal screening and follow-up. 

Changes are aligned with recent updates from the BC Guidelines and Protocols Advisory Committee (GPAC) and BC Cancer Colon Screening Program. The colonoscopy surveillance recommendations following removal of colorectal lesion(s) have changed.  

An education session will be delivered by Dr. Paul Mullins on Thursday, September 21, 2023 12 pm – 1 pm PDT. Please register via link
