Conference Report: Improving Outcomes for Gastrointestinal Cancer in the UK

Wednesday, 15 June 2016 08:21

On 7 December 2015, the British Society of Gastroenterology and the Royal College of Physicians held a joint conference: GI cancer in the UK: can we do better? The meeting was timely as, although outcomes for patients with most gastrointestinal cancers in the UK have steadily improved in the past 10 years, survival figures remain substantially worse than in many other comparable nations.

An extensive write up of the meeting, covering screening, early diagnosis, specific tumour sites and the interface between primary and secondary care were covered by leading UK experts.
