2014 Colorectal cancer summit

More than 60 stakeholders from across Victoria gathered to review data and identify local and state wide priorities to improve outcomes for people with colorectal cancer.

Major themes for the day were:

  • Data – more data and more accurate data
  • Multidisciplinary meetings
  • Emergency presentations – are we missing early diagnoses?
  • Variation in treatment received
  • Early diagnosis and colonoscopies – more information about wait times, strategies to improve access to diagnostic colonoscopies
  • Screening – ways to improve the participation in the National Bowel Cancer Screening Project (NBCSP)
