Background information

The Colonoscopy Clinical Care Standard was developed by the Commission following consultation and development of a national safety and quality model for colonoscopy (the safety and quality model). The development of a clinical care standard was an integral component of the safety and quality model.

The Commission collaborated and consulted with consumers, clinicians, researchers and health organisations during the development of the safety and quality model and many of these groups were represented on the Colonoscopy Clinical Care Standard Topic Working Group.

The clinical care standard complements existing efforts that support care of patients undergoing colonoscopy for screening and diagnostic purposes, including state and territory-based initiatives. It is expected that colonoscopy will be provided by a health service organisation that has been assessed to the National Safety and Quality Health Service Standards (NSQHS Standards). The NSQHS Standards require that all hospitals and day services providing colonoscopy in Australia are to be accredited to the Colonoscopy Clinical Care Standard.
