The Bi-National Colorectal Cancer Audit (BCCA) is a CSSANZ initiative used for clinical audit of the surgical practices of Australian and New Zealand surgeons for the purpose of quality assurance as well as research. First established in 2007 the database went online in 2013, making it more accessible, more useful and easier than ever before. The audit is applicable to all surgeons who see patients with a diagnosis of colorectal cancer.

Some of the inbuilt features include:

Reminders for incomplete data.
In built reporting – outcomes, morbidity, mortality, comparisons and inpatient reports
Ability to upload existing data sources
Multiple access levels – e.g. consultant and site manager access

Interested surgeons should contact BCCA Staff (contact details below) to arrange registration and hospital ethics. ​
