Providing better outcomes in bowel cancer detection is the goal of Dr. David Hewett, a gastroenterologist from the Royal Brisbane and Woman’s Hospital in QUEENSLAND AUSTRALIA. He has received a prestigious fellowship from the National Institute of Clinical Studies [N.I.C.S.]. Co sponsered by the Queensland Health Clinical Practice Improvement Centre.

Dr. Hewett will use the N.I.C.S. Quensland Health Fellowship to undertake a two year implementation project to improve the quality of colonoscopies.

Bowel cancer is the second most common cause of death from cancer in Australia” he said.

Early detection is critical and a colonoscopy is the best invasive means of both examining the bowel and removing precancerous polyps but the quality of colonoscopy performance various.

“Via my “NICS” Fellowship, based at the Queensland Health Development Centre, I’ll provide training to both private and public colonoscopists to address this variance and improve patient care.”
