Study participants included patients with colorectal cancer that was diagnosed between 1996 and 2001 in the province of Ontario, Canada, and died of colorectal cancer by 2003 (the case patients).

ASGE provides training and education to physicians to ensure that patients are receiving the highest quality of care possible.
