The Advances in Gastrointestinal Cancer Resource Centre Introduction
The Advances in Gastrointestinal Cancer Resource Centre is dedicated to disseminating cutting edge data to practising healthcare professionals. Our aim is to provide clinically relevant information in order to enhance the caregivers' ability to provide optimal care for their gastrointestinal (GI) cancer patients. We will offer journal articles, patient case reports, interviews, and roundtable discussions with experts, with additional content aimed at expanding your expertise in the multidisciplinary field of GI cancer. This freely available resource, hosted by European Journal of Cancer and Clinical Colorectal Cancer, will function as a hub of information for healthcare professionals.
Our initial focus for Advances in Gastrointestinal Cancer will centre on gastric cancer, with future expansion to all GI malignancies. New content will be posted monthly, and the Editors encourage you to visit the site regularly to stay abreast of recent scientific developments in GI cancers. Please subscribe to our eAlert to ensure you are informed of all new content as it is published on this platform.
