Actions of improvement are applied, for 4 months, to realize the second evaluation, with the same number of patients and to evaluate improvement with regard to the situation of item. Results: A deficit of information has been detected in the moment to indicate the endoscopia (little information contributed by the doctor prescriptor and in an important number of cases informed assent was not contributed) and after realizing the test, not contributing recommendations. We prioritize our action to this level with measures of improvement and after a new evaluation, a significant improvement decides in these situations.
