BiSTC Colorectal Surgery Trial Meeting 2015 Agenda
The Birmingham Surgical Trials Consortium is hosting a meeting on Wednesday 15th July 2015 during which, a progress update and results from the FOxTROT, CReST, TREC and ROLARR colorectal trials will be provided. In addition, the new trials FOxTROT 2, CReST 2 and STAR-TREC will be introduced.
This meeting is aimed at collaborators on the BiSTC colorectal cancer surgical trials. If you would like to attend, please contact the Birmingham Clinical Trials Unit on
0121 415 9103
If you feel that your site may benefit from a meeting, please contact the FOxTROT trials team by email on email@example.com to arrange a teleconference.
We are delighted to offer the opportunity for local Principal Investigators to attend an hour-long teleconference hosted by the trial Chief Investigator, Professor Dion Morton.
As FOxTROT is now reaching it's final stages Professor Morton would like to use these teleconferences to update local PI's on the overall progress of the trial and discuss recruitment. It is also an opportunity to have an open discussion about our new and exciting trial FOxTROT 2.
New dates are routinely arranged and circulated by email to all current local Principal Investigators. If you are interested in attending one of these teleconferences please indicate so by contacting the FOxTROT trial office on FOxTROT-Trial@contacts.bham.ac.uk.
Nursing & Administrative Staff Teleconferences...
We are also delighted to offer non-investigative staff the opportunity to partake in a teleconference hosted by the BCTU FOxTROT trial office.
During this hour-long teleconference the trial will be presented to you along with an overview of patient pathway, randomisation procedures and safety reporting. It will also allow for the opportunity to discuss any questions directly with a member of the trial team.
This teleconference is now offered automatically to all new members of staff, however pre-existing collaborator's are more than welcome to attend.
If you would like to register your interest in attending one of these sessions please do so to the FoxTROT trial email address FOxTROT-Trial@contacts.bham.ac.uk.
Radiology and Pathology Workshop
A site MUST have a FOxTROT trained radiologist to begin recruiting patients into the trial because they will be responsible for identifying potential participants
The most recent FOxTROT radiology workshop was successfully held Monday 15th December 2014 and was a success with 16 attendees. There is currently no future workshops arranged; however
Workshops are hosted by Professor Gina Brown (Royal Marsden Hospital) and take approximately half a day. We are pleased to announce that the workshop can now be broadcast via webinar, which we feel will allow for greater attendee numbers.
Attendance of this workshop is worth 1 CPD credit. Please contact the FOxTROT Trial Office if you wish to express an interest for future workshops, whether as a radiologist new to the trial or a pre-existing radiologist and would like a refresher.
There are no pathology workshops planned. If you have any queries or concerns regarding that part of the trial please contact the FOxTROT Trial Office.
