    • Colorectal cancer

      This quality standard defines clinical best practice within this topic area. It provides specific, concise quality statements, measures and audience descriptors to provide the public, health and social care professionals, commissioners and service providers with definitions of high-quality care.

      The quality standard covers the diagnosis and management of adults (18 years and older) with newly diagnosed and recurring adenocarcinoma of the colon and rectum. It includes diagnosis of suspected colorectal cancer, staging of the disease, management of both local and metastatic disease, and follow-up and regular surveillance for those free from disease after treatment.
