Colorectal Trials Collaborators Meeting

1st Annual Colorectal Surgery Nurses Meeting

          Nurses meeting on Recruitment into Colorectal Surgery Clinical Trials

                            1st Annual Colorectal Surgery Nurses Meeting

The first annual Colorectal Surgery Nurses Meeting on Recruitment into Surgery Clinical Trials took place on Thursday 19th July 2012 at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Birmingham.

This one day meeting provided an excellent opportunity for nurses to hear about the exciting recent developments in current and new colorectal surgery trials as well as discuss issues faced by nurses in recruitment to surgical trials.

Recruitment remains one of the big challenges for trials in the surgical setting.  The focus of this one day meeting was therefore on trying to help share experiences and to address the issues faced by nurses in recruitment to surgical trials.

We were delighted to have Professor Freddie Hamdy from the University of Oxford deliver the keynote lecture on 'Lessons learnt from ProtecT trial'; the ProtecT trial in prostate cancer incorporated a qualitative study on barriers to recruitment that yielded several key papers on how to optimise recruitment into complex randomised controlled trials. 

The meeting also had an interactive session and panel-lead discussion on the experiences of recruitment in the surgical setting.  The aim of the interactive session was to gain a better understanding of the barriers to recruitment from the nurses' perspective and to overcome these.

The meeting was a great success attended by over 100 nurses.  Many thanks to all those who attended.
