IMPACT meeting, Newcastle Royal Infirmary, 17th September 2018

The Christie peritoneal service was invited to act as Faculty at the recent IMPACT initiative in Newcastle. Improving management of patients with advanced colorectal tumours is an initiative of the Association of Coloproctology of Great Britain and Ireland where a programme of case studies are explored based on MDT decisions of complex disease pathways.

The programme is offered on a regional basis and so far the Christie peritoneal Team have presented at Basingstoke, York and Newcastle. We will continue to support this programme to improve awareness of treatment options for patients with peritoneal metastases.
