The guidance is intended to provide information that may assist colorectal surgeons and other healthcare professionals and recommendations are targeted at clinicians only.

The recommendations in this guidance do not replace the need for clinical decision making to each individual presentation nor variations based on locality, facility and resource availability. Ultimately, doctors or other healthcare professionals must make individual decisions regarding particular clinical procedures or treatment plans taking into consideration clinical information presented by the patient and the diagnostic and treatment options available, using their knowledge and expertise. The guidance is unlike protocols or guidelines issued by employers, as the recommendations are not intended to be prescriptive defining a single or exclusive course of action, management or standard of care.
