P010 FIRST SURVEILLANCE COLONOSCOPY FOR INFLAMMATORY BOWEL DISEASE – ARE WE GETTING IT RIGHT FROM THE START?



Surveillance for colorectal cancer (CRC) is necessary in patients with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). Patients with ulcerative colitis (UC) have a similar CRC risk to those with Crohn’s colitis (CC). British Society of Gastroenterology (BSG) guidelines from 2010 outlined recommendations for screening including surveillance intervals and pancolonic dye spraying with targeted biopsies. We aimed to identify reasons why the first surveillance colonoscopy is not being performed as advised, including the role of poor bowel preparation and disease activity.
