Pelican Cancer Foundation in collaboration with The Association of Coloproctology of Great Britain & Ireland are delighted to invite clinicians from the NORTH WEST THAMES & SOUTH WEST THAMES CHAPTERS to take part in the Pelican OReCO (Optimising Rectal Cancer Outcomes) Programme on Thursday 2nd May 2024, 9am until 5pm, at the Cavendish Conference Centre, 22 Duchess Mews, London, W1G 9DT.

Putting patients at the centre of this innovative programme, the interactive workshops will focus on management of rectal cancer with discussions around a number of case studies. Expert panels with local involvement will discuss the patient’s pathway for optimal diagnosis and treatment of rectal cancer in workshops around England, Scotland, Ireland, Northern Ireland and Wales in 2024 to 2026 for colorectal MDTs in ACPGBI Chapters.  These workshops form part of an Accredited National Education Programme.

Pelican Cancer Foundation will fund places for colorectal MDT members from the disciplines of Surgery, Radiology, Pathology, Medical Oncology, Radiation Oncology and Nursing.

The purpose of the Workshop is to:

  • Raise awareness on current optimal management of rectal cancer with a focus on surgical techniques.
  • Ensure more consistent processes across all colorectal MDTs to support individual patients’ treatment.
  • Help all patients have the best treatment, at the best time in the best place.

By attending the Pelican OReCO Workshop, you will have the opportunity to discuss complex cases, share experience and uncertainty on the optimal therapy for patients and learn from others to raise standards across all colorectal MDTs in Great Britain and Ireland.

If you would like to attend this workshop please contact your Colorectal MDT Lead within your hospital.
