Colorectal Cancer Sub-Committee

The Partnership established a Colorectal Cancer Sub-Committee in early 2013 under the auspices of the Partnership provides an exciting opportunity for clinicians, supported by state wide outcomes data, to come together and have a robust debate on how to improve outcomes for people with colorectal cancer in Queensland.

The members of the Colorectal Cancer Sub-Committee are invited to participate by the Partnership.
