About this online course

With the introduction of population-based screening programs in several countries, the proportion of patients diagnosed with early invasive colorectal cancer (T1 CRC) has been vastly increasing. There are several major challenges in clinical management of this patient group, resulting in significant practice variations among physicians.

This online course covers the most relevant aspects of clinical management of T1 CRC patients, and provides an overview of latest insights and current knowledge gaps. To facilitate the learning process, several questions on real-life patient cases have been included in which learners can bring the acquired knowledge directly into practice.

Learning objectives

  • To understand how to reach a conclusive diagnosis of GORD
  • To know how to reach a conclusive diagnosis of no GORD
  • To understand how to deal with an inconclusive diagnosis

Target audience

This course is suitable for gastroenterologists, surgeons, pathologists, nurses and any other healthcare professionals interested in, or actively involved in clinical management of T1 CRC patients.
