Clinical practice guidelines for the diagnosis and management of Barrett’s oesophagus and early oesophageal adenocarcinoma
These Guidelines seek to assist Australian doctors and patients by providing up-to-date, evidence-based information about Barrett’s Oesophagus and early oesophageal adenocarcinoma.
The development process was extensive, involving a large working group who systematically reviewed the literature to address pertinent clinical questions. Through consensus, a set of recommendations was developed which have been rated according to the underlying quality and applicability of the evidence.
The Guidelines are aimed at gastroenterologists, pathologists and physicians, as well as members of teams in multi-disciplinary clinics to which patients with Barrett’s Oesophagus and OAC are referred (including surgeons, radiologists, nurse practitioners etc). As an open resource, we anticipate that the Guidelines will also be relevant and informative to primary care practitioners and their patients who may be diagnosed with this condition.
