The Effect of an Intensive Endoscopic Quality Improvement Program (EQUIP) on Improved Detection and Classification of Non-polypoid (Flat and Depressed) and Polypoid Colorectal Adenomas. ("EQUIP" Study)
Our Endoscopic Quality Improvement Program (EQUIP) was a prospective educational
intervention with our staff endoscopist as our study population. The investigators measured
adenoma detection rates for a baseline period then randomly assigned half of the
endoscopists to undergo EQUIP training. The investigators then examined baseline and
post-training study adenoma detection rates (ADR's) for all endoscopist (trained and
un-trained) to evaluate the impact of training.
Allocation: Randomized, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Open Label
Measurement of overall adenoma detection rate
Primary outcome measures will include overall and per patient adenoma detection rate for polypoid and non polypoid neoplastic lesions.
