Several tests are available for patients to screen for colon cancer.  Colonoscopy is the only test which can detect and remove pre-cancerous polyps.  The ASGE Value of Colonoscopy (VOC) task force has developed education material and strategies to promote the value of colonoscopy to your patients and to your referring internists.

Join ASGE on Thursday, March 4 for a Practice Operations Discussion Forum on the Promoting the Value of Colonoscopy to Your Patients for a presentation and question and answer session on Value of Colonoscopy campaign, outreach program and valuable resources available through ASGE.
