New Colorectal Current Awareness Bulletin

29 May 2015

Steffi Sams

Colorectal Current Awareness Bulletin - WelcomeOn 19th May the Library launched the new Colorectal Current Awareness Bulletin. Aimed at general surgeons with a subspecialty interest in colorectal surgery, this bi-monthly bulletin gives an update of the latest research in this field and enables busy surgeons to keep abreast of the literature.

Following the successful format of our other specialty-based current awareness bulletins (Cardiothoracic, Vascular, Urology, Plastic & Reconstructive, Trauma & Orthopaedics, Paediatric and Emergency General Surgery, as well as an all-member Patient Safety bulletin), we have worked closely with our team of clinical advisors to ensure that we select important and interesting research papers. Although already at sub-specialty level, items are grouped into topics: colorectal cancer, inflammatory bowel disease, colonoscopy, proctology & pelvic floor, intestinal failure & abdominal wall reconstruction. This allows a better overview of the developments in a particular area of clinical practice, encourages debate where studies show conflicting results and identifies trends towards changes in patient care.
