Brief Summary:
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effectiveness of the GI clinic's currently used web-based instructions at St. Paul's Hospital.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment
Colon Cancer Device: Aiddly (Web Site)

Detailed Description:
Colorectal cancer (CRC) is a relatively common and life threatening condition that affect one in thirteen individuals in their lifetime. Colonoscopy is the most used procedure to allow gastroenterologist to identify colorectal malignancies or precancerous lesions at an earlier stage, which affords a greater chance for cure. However, low bowel cleanliness hinders polyp detection rates and therefore colonoscopy effectiveness. In the past, the majority of the studies have focused on pharmacological factors to optimize bowel preparation quality. Recently, the non-pharmacological factors have been found to have significant increases in bowel preparation quality. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effectiveness of the GI clinic's currently used web-based instructions at St. Paul's Hospital.

Group/Cohort Intervention/treatment
Web Group
Patients given web site (aiddly) instructions for colonoscopy
Device: Aiddly (Web Site)
A website designed to better educate patients on how to prepare for their colonoscopies

Patients given paper instructions for colonoscopy



Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Effectiveness of Web-based instructions [ Time Frame: Time 0 ]
    Determine the effectiveness of Web-based instructions patients in preparing for colonoscopy by comparing the percentage of patients that achieved an excellent Boston Bowel Preparation Score when following the web-based instructions compared to historical control of paper written instructions.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Benefit of web-based instructions [ Time Frame: Time 0 ]
    Determine through a survey the benefit to patients of this method of education.
