Update on Colon & Rectal Cancer

I will describe the new guidelines for colon and rectal cancer screening and demonstrate how they can be utilized to either defend or prosecute a medical malpractice case.

Emphasis will be placed on evidence based medicine, standard of care, and causation.

After attending this webinar you will be able to:

Understand the new guidelines for colorectal cancer screening.
Determine if and when a colonoscopy met or fell below the standard of care.
Delineate the difference between a screening colonoscopy and when a colonoscopy is indicated for symptoms.
