The Pelvic Radiation Disease Annual Conference 2022 will be held on October 1, 2022 from 10:00 to 13:00 (British Summer Time). This event will launch the Pelvic Radiation Disease Best Practice Pathway, a world-first document created in collaboration with leading UK experts in pelvic radiotherapy late effects.
The Best Practice Pathway will guide the management of Pelvic Radiation Disease (PRD) and support the development of better services and care pathways.
The document is aimed at any healthcare professional who cares for someone with, or at risk of developing, PRD and will give a greater voice to people living with PRD.
This launch event will introduce the document and includes talks on some key under-recognized problems such as leg and genital lymphoedema, and vascular, bone and endocrine issues.
For more information and to register for the event and be notified of the document going live, visit prda.org.uk/prda22/
“Radiotherapy late effects are life changing. This guidance helps us to understand the challenges that people face and to manage the whole person, not just individual systems or bits of anatomy. It is ground-breaking in providing evidence and structure which will translate into improved outcomes and safer patient care”Dr Lisa Durrant, Consultant Therapeutic Radiographer
