Topic Working Group

A Colonoscopy Clinical Care Standard (CCS) Topic Working Group (TWG) comprised of individuals with relevant expertise and experience in the Australian health care system was convened to provide clinical advice, expertise and consumer input during the development of the Clinical Care Standard.

The role of the TWG is to:

  • Advise on the scope and key components of care for the Colonoscopy CCS
  • Advise on key sources of evidence including clinical practice guidelines, standards and empirical literature to build upon the body evidence supporting the existing model
  • Advise on the formulation of quality statements and supporting indicators
  • Recommend strategies to support the implementation of the Colonoscopy CCS
  • Actively support raising awareness of the Colonoscopy CCS.

The role of Consumer members is to advise the Commission on matters relating to their experience, as a patient or carer, and provide this perspective for the development of the Colonoscopy CCS.
