What Gina will cover

Pelvic Radiation Disease (PRD) is defined as one or more ongoing symptoms of variable complexity that may affect people who have previously had radiotherapy to the pelvic region to treat their cancer. This includes pelvic radiotherapy for cancers of the colon, rectum, anus, prostate, testes, bladder, cervix and womb, but also total body radiotherapy and radiotherapy in the pelvic area for other primary and secondary cancers. It can impact greatly on quality of life. The appropriate nutritional advice can make a positive impact on the patients with PRD and this session will discuss this.

The webinar is free for all to attend
