SCOOP Private - Colorectal Cancer Prevention

Providing an Evidenced Base, Quality Colorectal Cancer Prevention Service

SA Group of Specialists were one the founders of the SCOOP colorectal cancer prevention program. This aims to provide patients at risk of colorectal cancer due to either a personal history of colonic polyps or family history of colorectal cancer an evidenced based surveillance and recall program.

The SCOOP program was developed in 2000 in response to the release of the NHMRC Guidelines on Colorectal Cancer Prevention in 1999. It is now Australia’s largest colorectal cancer surveillance program, and is nationally recognized as a leader in this area. SA Group of Specialists run SCOOP Private, but share de-identified data and information with the SCOOP program of the Southern Adelaide Local Health Network enabling research and quality assurance. Information on risk, and appropriate strategies to cope with this are constantly evolving. Research from SCOOP is helping inform new guidelines, and the SCOOP program is set to be able to change recommendations as new evidence emerges.
