NDRS Lynch Syndrome Webinar
April 30 @ 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM
To mark Bowel Cancer Awareness month this April, the National Disease Registration Service (NDRS) has organised a webinar to showcase the first ever national Lynch syndrome database created and how it can be used.
Lynch syndrome is a genetic condition that increases the lifetime risk of bowel cancer to up to 80%. Funded by Bowel Cancer UK, this national registry will help inform surveillance, treatment and care of people with the condition.
Speakers: Professor Sir John Burn (Newcastle University), Fiona McRonald and Steven Hardy (NDRS)
The webinar will cover:
- Who we are and what we do
- Diagnosis of Lynch syndrome
- An overview of the dataset and how it’s being used to monitor and improve patient care
- Findings from a study on how Lynch syndrome patients treated with aspirin had significantly reduced risk of bowel cancer
- Next steps
