1.1 Development of guidelines
There is currently no clear national consensus for the optimal diagnosis and treatment of cholangiocarcinoma. The need for these guidelines was highlighted following the annual meeting of the British Association for the Study of the Liver (BASL) in September 2000. During their development, these guidelines were presented at a BASL Liver Cancer Workshop in January 2001. They were also circulated to BASL members and the Liver Section of the British Society of Gastroenterology (BSG) Committee members, including gastroenterologists, hepatologists, gastroenterological surgeons, pathologists, radiologists, and epidemiologists for comments before the final consensus document was drawn up.
