Likely due to increased awareness and accumulating experience in detection, an analysis of an Australian tertiary health network showed a significant improvement in overall sessile serrated adenoma detection rate (SSADR) over 4 years. However, a brief educational intervention did not further improve SSADR [1]. The SSADR for colonoscopists is increasingly considered as a quality marker of an effective colonoscopy. As per recent Australian standards, hospitals currently need to monitor the SSADR of their colonoscopists. The Australian Colonoscopy Recertification Program recommends an SSADR of ≥4%. Therefore, educational programmes aiming to improve SSADR are highly relevant. The current study analysed 1,763 colonoscopies from July 2018-January 2019 (pre-intervention) and 1,843 from March 2019-September 2019 (post-intervention). The overall detection rates were: adenoma detection rate (ADR): 40.5% pre-intervention versus 42.4% post-interv...
